1 whole small watermelon
4 ounces feta cheese, cut into cubes
Juice of 1/2 a lime
2 tablespoons fresh basil, sliced thin
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Black pepper to taste
Balsamic reduction for drizzling
Cut the watermelon into 1-inch-thick slabs and lightly brush them with olive oil. Place the slabs of watermelon cut side down onto a heated grill and grill for about 2-3 minutes per side or until marked and warm. Remove from the grill and cut off the rind, then cut into 1-inch cubes. Toss the grilled watermelon with the basil, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Gently fold in the cubed feta being careful not to break it up. Drizzle the salad with the balsamic reduction before serving.
Perfect for a Fourth of July celebration!
