The Perfect Summer Side

Richard Rudisill

Looking for a side dish that is just a bit different for your next get together or cookout? Give this light and refreshing grilled watermelon salad a try. Grilling the already juicy watermelon gives it a slight smokey taste and brings out even more juiciness. The natural sugars in the watermelon begin to caramelize and turns this sweet treat into something like you have never had.Cube and combine the watermelon with a light citrus vinaigrette for a touch of acidy. Adding jalapeno brings in some spice and crumbled feta a touch of saltiness that makes this salad perfectly balanced.Enjoy with grilled chicken, fish or even a nice charred burger, enjoy!
