Grilled Watermelon

Let’s wrap things up with a fun little summertime dessert. Have you ever tried grilling watermelon? It is absolutely delicious and easy to do. The outside caramelizes and it gives the watermelon a completely different (but just as yummy) flavor and texture

This couldn’t be simpler. Slice your watermelon and lightly sprinkle them with salt. Set them in a colander. The salt will draw out some of the water. Let it sit for about 30 minutes. Next, brush the watermelon with honey and grill them on both sides until there are nice grill marks and the honey starts to caramelize. It took only a few minutes per side. for us. Serve hot.
