I'm not a fan of raw tomatoes, but I do love salsa, pizza sauce, ketchup etc. I just don't like them raw so I'm always on the search for alternatives. Last night I really hit the jackpot.
I made some salsa/relish/chutney (whatever you want to call it) with some of the pickled watermelon rind I made a few weeks ago. I just diced it finely and added onion, red pepper, jalapeno, black pepper, chile powder and a bit of honey.
Just had some on chicken soft tacos made of leftover Egged chicken. It was fantastic. Of too buy more watermelon just for the rind! When I made my pickled rind I used a good deal of lemon/orange zest so this also has a nice citrus kick. Can't wait to Egg some fish for fish tacos to put this on. Just have to suffer through the heat index.
