Watermelon Pineapple Salsa

What's the deal with watermelons these days?  Have you noticed how they are all perfectly round and seedless now?  My state is famous for it's watermelons, and in Arkansas it's just not right, and it goes against the natural order of things, I say, to have perfectly round watermelons!

Anyway, I was at Walmart today and I finally found a big, irregular shaped watermelon with seeds.  We cut into that thing, and it was so sweet and juicy!  We ate half of it at lunch, and the other half we turned into Watermelon Pineapple Salsa (we had friends over for dinner so I made a lot of salsa; you might want to half the recipe).


Watermelon Pineapple Salsa

3 cups watermelon, diced
1 cup fresh pineapple, diced (not canned, not ever)
1/2-1 cup red onion, to taste
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Juice of one lime
salt to taste

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and stir.  Refrigerate for 1-3 hours.  Serve with chips or over grilled fish.
