New favorite thing in the entire world: Grilled watermelon. The end.
But not the end. Because you have to try this and fall in love with living all over again. GRILLED WATERMELON. You've probably already done it and I'm just late to the par-tay.
It's so good! It brings out a flavor in the watermelon that I never knew could even be. It's like grilled water. Isn't that bizarre? Grilled water flavored with melon in a little slice. Unreal. Try it.
But try it with grilled shrimp on top AND a super fresh tomato and radish salad. It's rifreakingdiculous good. I got the inspiration from this here recipe, but I changed a few things because I like to be complicated.
Why is summer so good? GRILLED WATERMELON. That's why.
Start with the topping! Dice up a nice mix of red and yellow tomatoes. Roma, cherries, whatever ya got. (Also dice up a radish. I forgot to photograph that because I've got twins...)
Then get your dressing prepped. Lil' oil, lil' Dijon, lil' minced shallot, lil' lemon.
Then toss half of the dressing with the tomato mix.
Then brush the rest of the dressing over your shrimp! Be sure and season the shrimp with salt and pepper too.
WATERMELON. I didn't photograph grilling it because my grill is so freaking heavy and it would have put me in a horrible mood.
But here we are! Once you grill your watermelon slices and your shrimp, you just top the watermelon with the shrimp and the reserved tomato salad. Bam.
I WILL SAY, the grilled watermelon is extremely watery, so you may want to pat it dry before serving.
Also! If you don't care to get all fancy with the presentation, just toss it all together in a big bowl and dig in. It. tastes. amazing.
Did I mention the watermelon is grilled?
