1 small, personal-sized watermelon
¼ cup honey
2 limes, zested and juiced
1 Tablespoon mint leaves
salt or Tajin (optional)

To prepare the sauce add honey, lime juice and the zest of one lime to a small bowl. Place mixture in the microwave for 5-10 seconds. Stir to combine – set aside.

Watermelon can be grilled outdoors or indoors on a griddle or cast-iron skillet (high heat). Wash the melon, then cut off the ends. Cut it in half, then into quarters. Slice the melon into ½ -inch triangles; be sure to leave the rind on!

To grill the melon, arrange slices on the hot grill in a single layer. Cook for 2 minutes on each side – you want to see grill marks. Remove from grill and drizzle with honey-lime sauce. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, serve immediately!

Grilling Tips:
Oil your grill or skillet to keep watermelon from sticking
Sprinkle a bit of salt on the grilled melon to enhance the sweetness
Sprinkle Tajin on top of the grilled melon for a sour/sweet, tasty combination
