Look At The Colors In This Grilled Watermelon Salad

It's a really subtle flavor and I find it very refreshing, it's something that I eat a lot of when on holiday each summer, especially for breakfast - the perfect way to rehydrate after a few beers the night before! Let's face it though, you have to eat a lot of it, they're so big so you've either got to eat a whole one or not at all.

But even eating a load of it isn't going to do you any harm because a watemelon is approximately 92% water and certainly there's not fat there at all.

I have to say that grilled watermelon really isn't my cup of tea but then you can't please everyone can you?...And I'm not going to deny that the colors look really awesome in this picture.
