BSI~Watermelon Pico De Gallo

There is a contest that uses a secret ingredient over at The Ungourmet
http://theungourmet.blogspot.com/2009/06/bsi-blogger-secret-ingredient.html and I thought it sounded interesting.It is the Blogger Secret Ingredient and Kim's choice as host is watermelon. All you have to do is pop over to see the rules and use watermelon in a recipe. MMMMMM....nice and refreshing choice! Here is my recipe for Pico de Gallo that uses watermelon. The jicama gives it a great crunch and the great contrasts of sweet and spicy flavors are a delight to the taste buds! I can use the cilantro growing on my deck and I think the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was thinking of this when she painted this lovely picture!
Now break out the bag of Lime Doritos and scoop some of this up while sipping on, let's see...a Watermelon Margarita or a fruity sangria or a nice cold fresh white wine!

Watermelon Pico De Gallo
1 1/2 c Seedless watermelon -- cut in 1/4" dice
1/4 c Honeydew melon -- cut in 1/4 " dice
1/4 c Cantaloupe -- cut in 1/4" dice
1/2 c Jicama -- diced
1/4 c Red onion -- cut in 1/4" dice
1 Jalapeno chile pepper -- chopped
2 tb Lime juice -- fresh
1/2 c Fresh cilantro leaves -- chopped
Maple syrup -- to taste
1/2 ts Salt -- or to taste
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix lightly so as not to break up the watermelon.
