Melon and Grilled Peach Salsa

Use whatever melon is in season, ripe and firm. If you plan on refrigerating the salsa for a couple of days, choose a melon that is slightly underripe so that the flesh doesn’t get mushy over time. Jicama is a crunchy sweet brown root vegetable. If you can’t find it, leave it out. This salsa is great on any fish.
