Fire and Ice. The ultimate showdown. Wow, was this combination GOOD! Cube up some watermelon, and add green pepper and as much jalapeño pepper as you can tolerate. (Leave out the seeds and membrane if you want it cooler, add them in if you like heat.) Give it a good stir, and add 2 tablespoons of lime juice, and stir again. Done!
We made this to top chicken tacos tonight. Outstanding! There are no limits to what else you can add to this salsa.
