Grilled Cheese, Watermelon and Arugula SandwichRecipe courtesy of the National Watermelon Promotion Board.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 slices watermelon, approximately 4x4x1/2-inch thick
8 slices 100% whole grain bread, preferably chewy in texture (Dave's Killer Bread is great!)
2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
6 ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese - divided use into 4 equal portions
Cooking spray
1 1/2 cups baby arugula

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place watermelon pieces between paper towels to absorb extra fluid. Set aside.
  2. On each of four slices of bread, spread mustard and top with 1 1/2 ounces cheese. Top with second slice of bread.
  3. On a griddle or Foreman grill, spray cooking spray and grill the 4 sandwiches on each side until cheese begins to melt. Remove from griddle/grill, open and place a slice of watermelon and arugula. Close sandwich and cut in half. Serve.

Makes 8 to 12 servings.
