Grilled Watermelon Salad with Goat Cheese and Pancetta

Grilled Watermelon Salad with Goat Cheese and Pancetta

This Grilled Watermelon Salad with creamy goat cheese and crispy pancetta is the perfect medley to salute the long, sultry days of summer. Inspired by my favorite local restaurant, I had this sweet and savory creation plated in less than an hour, while barely breaking a sweat in our current August sauna. That’s no small feat seeing as we don’t have air conditioning in our kitchen! Although I chose to eat this for dinner, it could easily work double time as a salad at brunch, served alongside truffled eggs…assuming it’s cool enough to flip on the stove, of course.
