This grilled watermelon recipe is such a fun summer side dish! If you don't have Green Tabasco Sauce on hand, season the corn topping with fresh lime juice and diced jalapeños.


  • cups raw corn kernels
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Heaping ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 teaspoons Tabasco Green Sauce*
  • 6 1.5-inch watermelon wedges
  • Cooking spray, for the grill
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 small avocado, diced
  • Mint and/or basil leaves
  • Lime wedges, optional


  • Preheat a grill to medium high heat.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the corn, onion, red pepper, garlic, salt, and the Tabasco Green Sauce. Chill until ready to use.
  • Spray the grill grates with cooking spray and grill the watermelon 2 to 3 minutes per side or until char marks form.
  • Remove and let cool a few minutes, then top with the corn mixture, the feta, avocado, and fresh herbs. Serve with more tabasco or lime wedges on the side, if desired.


*You can substitute this ingredient with 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice plus 1/2 diced jalapeño.
