Spicy Watermelon Salsa
This recipe works very well over say grilled chicken, or pork, or even a mild poached fish; just add a light side and a cold glass of ice tea, and you have a great dish for a warm summers evening.(a couple of my spanish friends said it doesn't taste bad on hotdogs either-I'll take their word for it.)

This salsa is wonderfully spicy and flavorful. We served it on grilled chicken, but it would also be great on seafood or just with chips!

1Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. Serve with a slotted spoon(but don't discard juice-see note).
