Grilled Watermelon

27 Jun

Who would have thought that grilled watermelon is actually good! I had seen a recipe for grilled watermelon, but did not like the ingredients. I wanted to try the idea of grilling, but made my own sauce. For the 4th of July, step out of the box and try this. It was delicious and completely different than anything I have ever tasted.

  • zest of one lemon
  • juice from one lemon
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbs fresh chopped basil
  • watermelon slices cut in 1 inch thick slices

Preheat grill to high heat. Whisk together the first 5 ingredients. Grill the watermelon 2 minutes on each side. Place the watermelon slices on plate and drizzle with dressing. Garnish with basil.
