Grilled Watermelon and Braising Greens Salad


  • 1 (5 lb)seedless watermelon, cut into 8 slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (for brushing on watermelon)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 bag braising mix
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 cup crumbled goat cheese


Preheat grill. Brush watermelon slices with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill watermelon 1-2 minutes on each side. Chill for several hours before serving. In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, mint and vinegar; toss braising mix with dressing just before serving. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

(The watermelon can be cut into bit size pieces however a large piece of grilled watermelon is pretty darn impressive!).

Place braising mix on chilled plates, top with watermelon and sprinkle with goat cheese.
