  • 1 small watermelon seedless variety, if possible
  • 2 ½ tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 7 ounces (200g) feta cheese crumbled
  • 2 cups (380g) blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • juice from one lime
  • mint leaves for garnish


  • Heat an outdoor grill to high, or heat a griddle pan on the stovetop.
  • Cut the watermelon into half-inch thick wedges, remove the rind, and use 1 tablespoon of olive oil to brush onto both sides of the wedges.
  • Cook watermelon on each side for 2-3 minutes until grill marks develop.
  • Arrange the grilled watermelon on a serving plate and top with feta and blueberries.
  • In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, lime juice, orange juice, and salt, then drizzle over the salad.
  • Garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.


Tips For Success

  • Brush the watermelon with oil before grilling so that it does not stick to the grates. 
  • For extra flavor, marinate the feta or blueberries beforehand.


  • Vary herbs - use basil or cilantro instead. 
  • Make it spicy - If your family loves spicy food, add a bit of crushed red pepper or diced jalapenos to the salad. 
  • Add greens - Feel free to add greens like spinach and arugula.
  • Add veggies - Add sliced sweet bell peppers or red onions.  

Budget-Friendly Tips 

  • Swap out the blueberries for other berries that you have on hand.
  • Use another salty cheese that you have on hand.
