Grilled Watermelon with Gorgonzola and Pistachio Crumbles

grilled watermelon with gorgonzola crumbles recipe

A heaping pile of watermelon served on a hot summer day is a good thing. Grilling the watermelon takes it to great. But how do you make a great thing even better? By topping it with a handful of crumbly Gorgonzola and crunchy pistachios, a combination that somehow just works when the watermelon is slightly caramelized from the heat of a grill. If you grow your own thyme at home or frequent farmers’ markets, try lemon thyme in this recipe. The hint of citrus brightens the smoky sweetness of the fruit.

Makes 4-6 servings

Grilled Watermelon with Gorgonzola and Pistachio Crumbles

  • 1 (5-pound/2.2-kg) seedless baby watermelon, cut into 1-inch-thick wedges
  • Crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • Chopped pistachios
  • Chopped fresh thyme

Prepare a grill over medium-high heat.

Place the watermelon on the grill and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until the surface is seared and glossy but the interior retains its crunch. Sprinkle with a few handfuls of Gorgonzola, pistachios, and thyme to taste.
