Blue cheese and salty prosciutto pair well with sweet melon in this sweet-savory side dish of Grilled Watermelon with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto. Grilling the watermelon enhances that sweetness and adds a touch of smoky flavor. Brushing the wedges with oil keeps them from sticking to the grill.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Brush both sides of each watermelon quarter with olive oil, and season with desired amount of salt and pepper. Cut prosciutto into thin strips.

Step 2

Grill watermelon quarters, without grill lid, 1 minute on each side or until grill marks appear.

Step 3

Transfer watermelon to a serving plate; top with blue cheese, prosciutto strips, and fresh basil. Drizzle watermelon with balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.
