In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Get your grill going on medium heat. Cut the watermelon in 1β€³ pieces (rind removed), like steaks. This will ensure they will hold up to the grill.
  2. Place on grill and let cook for 5-10 minutes a side. (Grill temps will vary!) Once you see grill marks, it is safe to flip.
  3. Slice the prosciutto and fresh mint into smaller pieces.
  4. Add the grilled watermelon to a bowl. Add the prosciutto, mint, sunflower seeds, and goat cheese.
  5. Add the lime juice, balsamic vinegar, and sea salt. Toss to coat. Serve warm, cold, or room temp.
