Grilling watermelon gives it a pleasantly smoky flavor. Here, F&W's Justin Chapple tops slabs of the sweet-smoky fruit with a cumin-spiked avocado salsa; thin slices of jalapeño and lots of fresh herbs finish off the dish. Slideshow: More Watermelon Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Light a grill. In a medium bowl, gently mix the avocado with the cucumber, lime juice, minced jalapeño, cumin and the 1/4 cup of olive oil. Season the salsa with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

Brush the watermelon slabs with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat, turning once, until nicely charred on both sides, about 
4 minutes total. Transfer to 
a platter. Spoon the salsa on the watermelon and top with the cilantro leaves, dill sprigs and sliced jalapeño, if using. Serve right away.

Suggested Pairing

Herb-inflected Chilean Sauvignon Blanc.
