1/2 seedless watermelon, sliced and grilled
6 cups fresh arugula
6 ounces cubed feta cheese
Handful fresh mint
Good quality olive oil

1) Cut watermelon into thick slices, about an inch thick is good. Drizzle both sides of each slice with a small amount of oil.

3) Flip slices once and grill on the second side for about 3 minutes. Remove from grill and let cool briefly.

5) Lay down a bed of arugula and top with cubed watermelon, cubed feta, fresh chopped mint, a drizzle of good olive oil, and a small pinch of coarse salt.
