“Knock-Your-Socks-Off” Watermelon Salsa

I made this watermelon salsa for dinner a couple nights ago and served it with sucanat/cinnamon tortillas for the kids.  Not going to lie – this salsa is amazing.  I eventually gave up on the sucanat/cinnamon tortilla and dished myself up an over sized bowl of this salsa to eat on it’s own.  Don’t tell anyone but, I even ate it for breakfast the next morning.  This knock-your-socks-off Watermelon Salsa is worth the all the cutting, dicing, and preparation.  Your going to love it.

Watermelon is a beautiful fruit.  Filled with juice, you may want to drain some of the excess juice before serving.
