Try watermelon in a whole new way—grilled! Easy to make, this appetizer is sure to wow guests and leave them craving more.


  • 1 Seedless Watermelon
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 lb. Thinly Sliced Prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • Salt
  • Balsamic Glaze
  • Fresh Basil Leaves



Step 1

Remove rind from watermelon. Cut watermelon into 1-inch thick slices. Keep the slices as large as possible to make grilling easier.

Step 2

Once cut, place slices onto stacks of paper towels for 10-15 minutes. This will help absorb excess moisture.

Step 3

Meanwhile, cut prosciutto into long, thin strips (20-25 total).

Step 4

Brush extra virgin olive oil on both sides of watermelon slices and lightly sprinkle with salt.

Step 5

Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Place watermelon slices on grill for 3-4 minutes. You can flip and grill both sides if desired. You should see significant grill marks when done.

Step 6

Cut slices of watermelon into triangles. One small watermelon should yield 20-25 pieces, depending on desired size of appetizers.

Step 7

Transfer watermelon to a serving platter. Roll or stack prosciutto on top of watermelon. Sprinkle feta cheese over all pieces.

Step 8

Drizzle balsamic glaze over pieces and garnish with basil leaves.

Step 9

Serve immediately.
