Spicy Watermelon and Pear mingle-mangle

Watermelon is sweet and juicy, Asian pears are cool and crispy, limes are magically acidic, and jalapeno peppers are frighteningly basic.  Mix them all together and you will generate a taste explosion.

You will need:
1 medium sized watermelon (basket ball sized)
4 limes
1 fresh Jalapeno pepper (use about 3/4 of the pepper)

Chop everything up.  With the Jalapeno pepper, slice in half on the long axis, remove the seeds and dice very small.  Best to wear gloves, but if you don't have any, wash you hands a few times alternating between vinegar and olive oil to neutralize and solubilize the capsaicin.  Add the juice of the limes and enjoy the explosion in your mouth.
