Grilled Fish Tacos with Watermelon Salsa (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 08/20/2014 - In response to a request to add some low-fat, diabetic-friendly recipes to the mix, I offer this recipe for grilled fish tacos with fresh watermelon salsa. In this recipe, watermelon is combined with vinegar, cucumber, red onion, and a dash of olive oil to deliver a tasty, offbeat salsa that goes great with grilled fish tacos.
