4 cloves garlic
3 cups watermelon chunks
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Sriracha (or other hot sauce)
1. In a food processor, combine the celery, onion and garlic. Pulse the processor until they are finely chopped. Add the watermelon and tomatoes, then continue pulsing just until the watermelon is nearly liquefied, about 10 to 15 pulses.
2. Add the vinegar, olive oil and sugar, then pulse several times to blend. Stir in salt and pepper. Stir in just enough Sriracha to add a tang. Serve at room temperature.
