Watermelon Steak Salad

November 16th, 2018 12:12:00 pm

Welcome to a surpringly refreshing twist to grilling... Watermelon Steak Cube Skewers served over a Feta and White Bean Salad. This was my "meatless monday" creation and my husband was passing through the kitchen and did a double-take... no...  triple-take as he observed what was grilling on the grill pan. Top it with the balsamic reduction and you have an abundance of bursting flavor! Watermelon is in season, so if you've been eyeing it in the produce section, grab some and use it for dinner!

Delish fresh salads

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked cannellini beans, rinsed
  • 2 cups packed argula, spinach, fresh greens to your liking
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced, or Red Onion cubed
  • 3 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes (chopped very fine) optional
  • 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 oz of Feta Cheese, crumbled
  • Sea Salt and Black Pepper
  • 1 seedless watermelon, rind removed and cut into 2 or 3 inch square chunks (20 or so chunks)
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Wooden skewers

 

In a large bowl, combine beans, greens, onion, tomatoes and oil. Add crumbled feta cheese and mix gently. Season with Salt and Pepper to your liking.  Divide among bowls.

Preheat your Titanium Grill Pan (see it here) getting in nice and hot on medium-high heat. Now cut the watermelon into 2 or 3 inch cubes. I made them somewhat bite-size.

Pat the watermelon cubes dry and assemble them onto the skewers. Once the pan is hot, put the skewers onto the grill pan and start searing. No need to add oil. I grilled mine for about 3 or 4 minutes each side.

While you are grilling the watermelon steak cubes, start your balsamic reduction. Simply pour the balsamic into a small Titanium Universal Pot (see it here) and simmer gently. Then, I brought it up to a gentle boil, all the while moving it around with a heat-safe silicone spatula. You want to reduce it down until it is syrupy and coats the spatula (reduce in volume by about half). Pour this into a small pitcher if you wish, for adding to the salad tableside. This balsamic reduction will be your new best friend if you are not accustomed to using it. It adds such tremendous flavor to really anything. I save some in my refrigerator and drizzle it over whatever is boring me, like a chicken breast. I dip my bread into it. Warning... it is addictive, yet so easy to make rather than buying the super expensive glaze products.

Serve those salads with a skewer of watermelon steak on each bowl and a drizzle of balsamic onto the watermelon steaks. Yum!
