I think as a foodie you’re supposed to love all the foods. But there’s just one food I can’t get on board with…watermelon. Something about the texture does not do it for me. Or any melon for that matter. But I’ve found a method for completely revolutionizing the texture (and flavor!) of watermelon that’s right in line with summertime eating…grilling!

Grilling watermelon gives it a deeper sweetness while also making the texture a bit…more dense and rich? I’m not describing this well, but that’s just because it is indescribable, guys. So when you’re firing up the grill this summer, do yourself a favor and throw on these simple grilled fruit skewers!

We’re keeping the ingredients list to a minimum today. Just fruit and a simple honey-lime glaze. That sugary glaze is going to help caramelize the fruit while giving the perfect punch of citrus from the lime.

And can we talk about the sauce? I mean, THE SAUCE! This is a simple one that I learned from my grandpa. He usually combines yogurt (or sour cream) and brown sugar to create the best fruit dip. And in the name of today’s simple recipe, we’re taking a note from his book.
