This was actually quite delicious, even though at first I thought, "Why mess with watermelon?  It's perfect as is!"  The combination of lime/chili and sweet melon was so refreshing, I ended up eating much more than I normally would have.  I tried this recipe with cantaloupe, and it was just as tasty, too.
