this grilled fruit salad is super easy, yet very impressive. You an use a large watermelon for the bowl, and serve it family style, or use small personal watermelons and give everyone their own. Either way, this is sure to impress your guests. The sweet-spicy chervil and the peppery arugula, and the salty goat cheese all work together help balance the sweetness of the fruit.
