Hot Melon Salad

ACTIVE TIME: 21 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 21 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 cups medium-diced melon, such as cantaloupe or honeydew
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted


  • Heat a large saute pan or wok over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the olive oil, followed by the onion, and saute for 1 to 2 minutes, moving the pan continuously. Add the melon and saute until the melon starts to take on color, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the basil, salt, and pepper and continue to cook for another minute. Add the vinegar to the pan and toss to combine. Pour mixture onto a serving platter, sprinkle with the cheese and pine nuts, and serve immediately.
