Connie's Grilled Watermelon Salad

Connie Ottman


Originally saw this recipe among newspaper clippings some time ago. Tweaked through the years and came up with this. May be too late for this season but a great recipe to save for next summer. Fresh, sweet and easy, this could be done on an inside grill also. Enjoy!
