Grilled Watermelon and Feta Stacked Salads

Grilled Watermelon and Feta Stacked Salads

Salty and sweet, this stacked salad is almost too pretty to eat.


serves 4


½ cup balsamic vinegar

1 red seedless watermelon

8 ounces feta cheese

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

2 cups arugula

½ teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper

1 lemon, juiced



Prepare a grill or grill pan to a very high heat.

Pour the balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook until the vinegar is reduced by half and is like a thick syrup, about five minutes. Let cool.

Cut the watermelon and feta cheese into 8 squares (3x3 and ½ inch thick). Drizzle the watermelon with a little bit of the olive oil and season with a bit of salt and pepper. Grill VERY quickly, just getting a slight char, about ten seconds per side.

Toss the arugula with about a teaspoon or two of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Place a watermelon square on a platter, then a slice of feta, followed by another square of watermelon. Top with ½ cup arugula and drizzle with the reduced balsamic vinegar. Squeeze some lemon juice over the top and serve.
