Grilling watermelon makes it extra sweet and juicy.
Recipe type: Fruit
Cuisine: Fruit
Serves: approx. 10-12 pieces
  • ½ small seedless watermelon, cut into 2” slices
  • 3 Tb. honey
  • 2 Tb. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lime zest (or orange or lemon)
  • ¼ tsp. kosher or sea salt
  • Sweet yogurt or vanilla ice cream (optional)
  • Fresh mint sprigs (optional)
  1. Heat grill to medium/high.
  2. In a small bowl, mix honey, lemon juice, zest and salt. Set aside.
  3. Place watermelon pieces on the hot grill and allow about 2 minutes on the first side. Just before flipping, brush on a little of the honey mixture; repeat for the other side.
  4. Remove from grill and allow to cool a few minutes. Once cool, enjoy the pieces all by themselves, or chop them up into a bowl and add sweet yogurt or vanilla ice cream, then top with mint.
If you want to bypass the sweet/salty/citrusy mixture, simply grill the watermelon and enjoy it all by itself :)
