3 tbs chopped fresh mint leaves
Juice and finely grated zest of 1 lime
1 tbsp rice-wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over moderate heat (as near to 400degF as potential).
2. In a serving bowl combine the cucumber, mint, shallot, jalapeno, lime zest and juice, vinegar, crushed red pepper flakes, and sodium. Fold in the watermelon. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour to join the flavors. Function poultry, seafood, or pork to the salsa. LOVE!
3. Sprinkle the brown-sugar evenly on both sides of each and every piece of water melon, and grill over direct medium heat, together with the lid shut, for 1 minute, switching once. Remove from the grill. Take off and discard the rind, and dice the water melon.
