Grilled Melon Salad With Mint


  • 1/2 small ripe but firm orange melon (like cantaloupe, Charentais, or Hami), seeded
  • 1/2 small ripe but firm honeydew, seeded
  • 1/4 small seedless watermelon
  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • Flaky sea salt


  1. Preheat a grill to medium high. Cut orange melon and honeydew into 4 wedges each and remove rinds. Cut watermelon crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices and remove rinds. Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil all over melon and rub to coat.
  2. Grill melon for 4 minutes per side or until grill marks appear. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 1-inch pieces. Arrange melon on four plates; scatter mint, tarragon, and pine nuts on top; drizzle with remaining 4 teaspoons oil; and sprinkle with salt.


  • You can grill almost any fruit, including pineapple, peaches, pears, and bananas.
