Connie's Grilled Watermelon Salad

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!
