Grilled Watermelon Steaks with Feta and Orzo Salad Recipe
Active time: 25 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
In a medium saucepan of boiling salted water, cook orzo, stirring a few times, until al dente, about 6 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine lemon zest and juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Drain orzo and transfer to a large bowl. Add lemon dressing and toss well. Let cool to room temperature, tossing occasionally, then stir in scallion, mint, parsley, oregano, olives, and pine nuts.
Preheat a grill on high heat and oil well. Drizzle watermelon steaks on both sides with balsamic vinegar and cook until deeply charred, about 3 minutes. Turn, sprinkle with feta, cover, and grill another minute or so to melt cheese.
Place 1 watermelon steak on each of 4 plates, spoon orzo alongside, and serve.
