Serve It :: Grilled Watermelon

Summertime and grilling go together like …. well, like summertime and grilling. And this summer we’ve been experimenting with new recipes and flavor combos (like this Bruschetta Hot Dog) which make grilling a lot more fun.

Mixing up traditional grilling staples (like Hebrew National Hot Dogs) with unusual grilling items like watermelon and jalapenos keep thing interesting.

To accompany our Hebrew National Hot Dogs, we decided to try a new recipe: Grilled watermelon with jalapeno, lime, and sea salt. Definitely a unique pairing and WOW it was good! The watermelon had a nice grill flavor on the outside but was still cool and juicy on the inside. And the kick from the jalapeno was married nicely with the lime and sea salt. This recipe is one to try at your next BBQ!

Grilled Watermelon


10 slices of watermelon

1 lime

1 jalapeno

1 tsp sea salt

To Make

Grill sliced watermelon for about 5 minutes on each side then remove from grill. At the same time, grill a whole jalapeno and remove once it begins to char on the outside. Squeeze fresh lime on top of the grilled watermelon slices. Top with finely sliced grilled jalapeno and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve immediately.

With grilling season upon us, everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It’s all about what makes the cut (and
what doesn’t). Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or byproducts.
