Grilled  Watermelon Salsa

Grilled watermelon shines in this easy, unique salsa recipe! The subtle smokiness and sweet, caramelized watermelon makes this salsa irresistible!

Step 1

Heat grill {or grill pan} to medium-high heat (about 400°F). Spray or brush the watermelon slices with olive oil to lightly coat. Sprinkle all slices with cayenne pepper and sea salt.

Step 2

Place watermelon slices on grill, about 1-2 minute per side until light grill marks are visible. Remove and set aside to cool.

Step 3

When watermelon is cool enough to handle, cut flesh from rind and cut into chunks.

Step 4

In the bowl of a blender or food processor, add grilled watermelon, shallot, jalapeno, cucumber, tomato, cilantro, and lime juice. Pulse until slightly processed and combined, but still chunky.

Step 5

Pour into a medium bowl and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. (You can eat it right away, too, but the flavors develop when you let them sit and get cold.)
