Watermelon Pico de Gallo

This is the best time of the year for watermelon.  Sweet and juicy--it's one of those things (along with tomatoes and peaches) that just says "SUMMER". 

For most folks (Jake, for example), just chomping down on a slice of watermelon is the best way to eat it.  But watermelon is actually a great ingredient to use in ways that you might not expect--like in this recipe, for example.

This is one of the recipes I made at Blooming Glen Farm last week.  It was a big hit with all who tasted it.  So here's the simple receipe. 

Watermelon Pico de Gallo
Serves 6

Serve as a salsa with tortilla chips.  It's also great as a condiment with grilled fish or meat.

2 medium tomatoes, diced
16 oz watermelon, diced slightly larger than the tomatoes
1 Tbsp red onion, finely diced
1 jalapeno, diced (remove seeds and veins, if a less-spicy dish is desired)
1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
Juice of half a lime (or more, to taste)
Salt, to taste
  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, toss gently and chill for about an hour. Adjust seasoning, if necessary.
