Not your average holiday grilling

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It is a holiday weekend leading up to the actual 4th of July holiday on Wednesday.  Despite the heat, many people will probably insist on firing up the grill.

If you're tired of the regular grill fare, Raleigh-based chef and author Elise Johnson shared some alternatives with Kristen on WBTV News Saturday Morning.

She grilled up some fajitas, and even put some watermelon on the grill.
