Watermelon is a quintessential summer fruit, and there’s no better way to enjoy it than by grilling it. This grilled watermelon salad is the perfect dish for your next backyard BBQ.

To make this salad, preheat your grill to high heat. Then cut your watermelon into ½ inch thick slices. Grill the watermelon slices for 2-3 minutes per side until grill marks appear.

Pair with feta cheese, fresh mint, and balsamic vinegar to create a salad that is both sweet and savory. The grilled watermelon brings a smoky flavor to the dish, while the feta provides a creamy contrast. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar ties everything together.

You can serve this salad as a side or main dish. It’s also perfect for potlucks or picnics. Just make sure to keep it chilled until you’re ready to serve.

Grilled Plums with Blue Cheese and Balsamic Glaze

These BBQ grilled plums with blue cheese and balsamic glaze are the perfect summertime treat.

Plums are a great fruit to grill because the natural sugars in the plum caramelize and create a delicious grilled flavor.

To make these grilled plums, you’ll start by cutting the plums in half and removing the pit. Then, you’ll brush them with a little olive oil or vegetable oil.

Next, you’ll preheat your grill to medium-high heat and place the plum halves on the grill, cut side down. Grill for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear and the plums are slightly softened.

While the plums are grilling, you can prepare the blue cheese and balsamic glaze. For the blue cheese, crumble some cheese into a small bowl. And for the balsamic glaze, you’ll just need to heat some balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan over low heat until it’s slightly thickened.

Once the plums are grilled, place them on a serving plate and top with crumbled blue cheese and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.
