Grilled Watermelon and Zucchini Chips

Sunday night we used as much as we could from the garden while preparing dinner.

Zucchini
Basil
Tomato

It was our first tomato from the garden and it was delicious.

I picked up the watermelon at a small Farmers Market on Thursday evening and my-oh-my, it was a sweet one.  Juicy and messy.  Just the way watermelon should be.

And whole some may disagree about grilling watermelon, you have to trust me.

It worked.

The watermelon was brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper before being drizzled with honey and going straight onto the grill.

Cooked for about 2-3 minutes on each side and then plated with fresh tomato slices, feta crumbles, basil and a balsamic glaze.

And while I’ve seen lots of recipes for the combo of watermelon and tomato, I wasn’t a believer until last night.

So refreshing!

And alongside the watermelon salad, baked zucchini chips.

The breading was a combination of panko, crushed cornflakes (I didn’t have enough panko), basil, Parmesan cheese and salt.

The zucchini slices were tossed with olive oil and then dredged through the breading before baking.

I combined ketchup and Sriacha for a delicious dipping sauce.

A fun and fresh Sunday night dinner!

Have you ever grilled watermelon?

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve thrown on the grill?
