Watermelon and Tomato Salsa

I know it sounds a little goofy, but you’ve got to give this one a try. It’s great with any grilled fish. Since the salsa is fairly mild, I like to rub the fish with olive oil, salt, pepper and a little cayenne pepper. Just before serving, squeeze some fresh lime over the fish. I know that it’s a crap shoot when buying a whole melon since you can’t look inside, but chose one that’s firm and not grainy.
