Best New Chefs 2014 Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern update the classic combination of watermelon, feta and olives with smoky charred shishito peppers, fresh herbs and spicy Korean red chile powder. Slideshow: More Salads with Fruit

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large glass or ceramic baking dish, gently toss the watermelon, cucumbers, red onion, vinegar, gochugaru and 1/4 cup of the olive oil. Spread in an even layer and season with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil until shimmering. Add the shishitos and cook over high heat, tossing, until charred in spots and crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer the shishitos to the baking dish and toss.

Step 3    

Transfer the salad to plates and garnish with the olives, feta, watercress, cilantro and dill. Serve right away.
