2 cups fresh ripe watermelon, diced
1/2 medium cucumber peeled and diced
1/2 cup sweet onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced fine
8 to 10 large sweet basil leaves, chopped fine
3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice (add additional to taste)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
Combine all ingredients together, stirring gently, and serve immediately.
To prepare in advance, mix all ingredients except for the watermelon, and chill. Add diced, chilled watermelon just prior to serving. The watermelon exudes a bit of excess water if it stands long. Drain watermelon briefly in strainer before adding.

The best way to describe this salsa. It's a fresh, cool, crisp summer treat with just a touch of peppery warmth following the lightly sweet crunch. I spooned it over boneless chicken breasts, but can go with anything.
