Grilled Watermelon Salad with Arugula and Feta

  • Author: Chris Cockren
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 3 minutes
  • Total Time: 13 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4-6 1x


  • 1 (5 ounce) package baby arugula
  • 8 to 10 slices seedless watermelon
  • 8 ounces barrel aged feta cheese, diced
  • Easy Pickled Onions
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts
  • Few sprigs mint, torn
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Balsamic glaze*


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.  Spray watermelon slices with nonstick cook spray and lightly season with salt.  Grill for approximately 1 minute per side, until grill marks appear.  Let cool completely.  Cube watermelon into bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a large serving bowl, drizzle arugula with a little extra virgin olive oil and lightly season with Kosher salt.  Toss to coat.  Top with grilled watermelon, feta, pickled onions, pine nuts, and mint.  Right before serving, drizzle with balsamic glaze.  Devour.


Trader Joe’s sells a great balsamic glaze!  You can also easily make your own (just use trusty Google for recipes!)
