6 cups roughly chopped seedless watermelon, divided

1 shallot, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro, divided
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Put 5 1/2 cups of the watermelon, 2 1/2 cups of the tomatoes, shallots, oil, vinegar, 2 tablespoons of the cilantro, salt and pepper into a blender and purée until smooth.
