Grilled Watermelon with Feta, Jalapeños and Honey
8 1-inch-thick slices watermelon, small wedges
1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of kosher salt
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
1 jalapeño, chopped (for no spice, take out seeds, for spice, keep all seeds in)
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 oz. crumbled feta cheese
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 medium lime
Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Brush watermelon with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place watermelon on grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until it's warmed enough throughout to establish grill lines. Arrange on a platter.
Sprinkle jalapeño, cilantro and feta over watermelon. Drizzle with honey and squeeze lime half over.
