Cucumber and Watermelon Salsa

Author Notes: This is an amazingly fresh and crisp salsa. When I serve it, the trick is to serve it really cold. To keep it cold, I fill a medium bowl with crushed ice, then nestle a smaller bowl filled with the salsa down into it. - CAROLYNBCAROLYNB

Food52 Review: I served this with Grilled Swordfish and it was delicious. I found the textures and flavors to be quite balanced. The cucumber provided some cool relief from the jalapeno. The honey sweetened it up just right and the lime juice gave it some punch. I would most certainly make this again. - sticksnscones
