By: Snixy Kitchen


  • 1/2 small watermelon, sliced 1/2-inch thick and cut into triangular wedges
  • 1 (6-oz) wedge of Roth Grand Cru® cheese, sliced into thin 1 1/2-inch squares
  • 1/3 cup chopped dry roasted almonds
  • 30 to 40 small mint leaves (or larger leaves, torn into small pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons flaky salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly-ground pepper


  1. Preheat broiler to high and place a rack in the top third of the oven, about 8 to 10 inches away from the broiler.
  2. Place watermelon wedges in a single row on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Top each wedge with a square of cheese.
  3. Place the baking sheet under the broiler just until the cheese melts and gets lightly tinged with golden brown, about 2 to 5 minutes. Watch carefully and rotate the pan if you notice a hot spot.
  4. With a spatula, transfer the wedges to a serving platter and top with roasted almonds, 2 to 3 mint leaves, ~1/4 teaspoon olive oil, and a pinch of flaky salt and pepper to finish. Serve warm.
