When hearing of grilled watermelon it is easy to be a bit skeptical. But after the first bite, you will be a believer. If a fan of mint, this sauce is an awesome addition as well.

As the watermelon is not being cooked there is a reduced pressure to get the grill to a specific temperature. You can simply turn the watermelon when it has the caramelized grill marks you desire.

There are also no hard and fast rules about how you have to cut the watermelon.  Skewers work great as do simple large wedges. Serve as an entree, side, or even dessert.
