Step 1/4

  • 500 watermelon
  • 1 peach
  • 100 feta cheese
  • 20 pistachios

Peel and cut the watermelon into thick slices or rounds. Halve peach, remove the core, and thinly slice. Crumble the feta and set aside. Coarsely chop the pistachios, and chop most of the mint. Zest and juice the lime. Mix the baby spinach, arugula, and chopped mint together in a large bowl.

Step 2/4

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • smoked salt

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and grill the watermelon on both sides for approx. 2 min. per side. Season with smoked salt.

Step 3/4

  • 30 sugar

To make the balsamic glaze, add the sugar to a small pot and let caramelize briefly over medium-high heat. Add the balsamic vinegar, lime juice, and lime zest and bring to a boil. Let cook, stirring occasionally until it reduces by approx. half.
