    1. Lightly rib the watermelon with olive oil, and grill over high heat for 3-4 minutes per side, or until you’ve achieved beautiful grill marks and slight char around the edges.

    2. In a large, non-reactive bowl, gently combine all ingredients and fold together gently with a rubber spatula. Set aside in the refrigerator to keep cold, or leave at room temperature. Garnish the top with more crumbled feta, extra virgin olive oil, and lemon or lime juice.
