Salad with Chipotle Grilled Watermelon

Salad with Chipotle Grilled Watermelon

This week I was asked to make a wacky grilled recipe using Mazola Corn Oil and I was thinking hard on this one, but everything I tried making was not wacky enough.

So I turned to the Mazola website and found a recipe for spicy grilled watermelon.

It sounded unique, but delicious and at the same time wacky. I never had grilled watermelon, so I was a little bit skeptical about the whole thing.

Honestly I am not a big fan of grilled fruits; however, since we’re being honest here, grilled watermelon did add balance, spiciness, sweetness, and juiciness to the salad.
