From the Weight Watchers Slim Ways Grilling cookbook this sounds really good. Here is what they said about it - "This delicious dessert doubles as a wonderful side dish with pork or chicken. Just omit the orange juice and liqueur; instead, combine 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice with a pinch each salt and ground red pepper; drizzle over the grilled melon."
