These crostinis make a delicious app or side for any summer fare! Grilling watermelon adds a delicious smoky flavor to the fruit that really brings out its natural sweetness. If you’re out of fresh basil, mint also works wonderfully in this dish.



  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat.
  2. Grill the watermelon slices over medium heat for 5-7 minutes per side, until grill marks appear and the watermelon begins to caramelize.
  3. Arrange the basil leaves over the toasted baguette slices and top with the grilled watermelon.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk the balsamic vinegar and honey together and let it come to a simmer until it thickens just slightly (about 5 minutes).
  5. Drizzle the honey balsamic reduction over each of the watermelon slices and top with the crumbled feta cheese.
  6. Serve immediately.
