In a large bowl, combine melon, lime, mint, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and feta. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne; set aside.
Grill chops about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Move chops to a cooler part of the grill and continue cooking until internal temperature reaches 145°F in the thickest part of the meat, about 2 to 4 minutes. Serve with the melon salad.
