Stolen-of course. *Fresh*, best quality ingredients, please! (The cilantro vinaigrette recipe was found on the website I moved a few ingredients around and omitted the sugar. ) The servings, preparation and cooking times for this recipe are all estimated. Feel free to use your favorite cilantro vinaigrette but it must be homemade-please!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the cilantro-lime vinaigrette in a non-reactive bowl and set aside. Or, use an immersion blender.
  2. Cut the watermelon into 3/4" thick triangular slices (like a small slice of pizza.).
  3. Use a pastry brush to lightly brush olive oil on each side of the watermelon slices.
  4. Grill the watermelon slices on a hot grill for about 2-3 minutes each side or until there are grill marks but the watermelon is still firm and *NOT* mushy!
  5. Arrange the slices on a platter.
  6. Top each watermelon slice with about 1 tablespoon goat cheese; diced white onion, pepitas and a drizzle of the cilantro vinaigrette.
  7. Garnish with a little bit of fresh cilantro.
  8. Serve immediately.
