Watermelon-Avocado Salsa

This again is my entry to AFAM-July, if they consider it. It is hosted by Jugalbandi and originated by Maheshwari of Beyond the Usual
Here is to your rescue my blogger friend Asha of Foodie's hope. Another recipe for watermelon.
I saw this recipe couple of years ago on Food Network. And suddenly remembered that I had the recipe.
So here it is. Ashaji I hope you will like it. And since you are a
non-vegetarian, let me mention that the recipe was along with the Tuna Tacos.
4 people approximately.
1 cup cubed seedless watermelon
1/2 cup cubed ripe avocado
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup chopped parsley leaves
1/3 cup chopped cilantro leaves
1/3 cup lime juice
1 teaspoon finely chopped Serrano pepper
1 teaspoon finely minced jalapeno pepper
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 ounces premium tequila (optional)

Combine the watermelon, avocado, red onion, garlic, parsley, cilantro, lime, peppers, salt, pepper, oil, and tequila in a medium-sized bowl.

Toss all ingredients together gently. Let it stand for 30 minutes.
I served it in the avocado shell.

I did not use garlic, parsley, Serrano pepper and tequila. I did all the ingredients.

You can omit parsley and Jalapeno pepper works just fine.

Tequila!! left to your own discretion.

Hmm..interesting combination - I thik if you chop down the watermelon & avocado more finely, it would give it more prettier and easy to eat texture

Thankyou anonymous for the comments.
But I do not know how you would chop watermelon and avocado finely?
As watermelon would just disintegrate into a watery paste and avocado would turn mushy.
And I turn their texture are already so perfect that you don't have to put much effort in eating them.
