Step One:

Place almonds in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and toast, stirring occasionally, until almonds are fragrant and golden, about 3-4 minutes. Cool, roughly chop and set aside.

Step Two:

Cut watermelon into 1”-thick slices. Brush each side of slices with 1 teaspoon olive oil. In a grill pan, or on the grill, cook watermelon at medium-high heat until char lines develop, about 2 minutes each side. Remove from heat and chop into large chunks, discarding rind.

Step Three:

In large bowl, combine red onion, arugula, basil and mint.

Step Four:

Add watermelon, feta, and dressing and gently toss to combine.

Step Five:

Serve warm or chilled, topped with chopped, toasted almonds.
