Watermelon Salsa

WebMD Recipe from

Watermelon Salsa

Sweet, savory and crunchy salsa accompanies grilled pork or chicken rather nicely. Try it with tortilla chips as a refreshing alternative to a tomato salsa.

This Recipe Is:
Prep: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes
  • 3   cups
    finely diced seedless watermelon, (about 2 1/4 pounds with the rind) (see Tip)
  • 2  
    jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced (see Ingredient note)
  • 1/3   cup
    chopped cilantro, (about 1/2 bunch)
  • 1/4   cup
    lime juice
  • 1/4   cup
    minced red onion, (about 1/2 small)
  • 1/4   teaspoon
    salt, or to taste
  1. Place watermelon, jalapenos, cilantro, lime juice and onion in a medium bowl; stir well to combine. Season with salt. Serve at room temperature or chilled.


Tip: Melon selection and storage: Look for symmetrical unblemished melons, without flat sides, that have a creamy yellow spot on the bottom indicating ripeness. At 92% water, this fruit should feel heavy when you heft it. Precut melon flesh should be dense, firm and appear moist. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week or keep in a cool, dark spot. Cover the cut surface of melon with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Ingredient Note: The seeds and surrounding membrane are the spiciest part of the chile pepper. To increase the heat of the salsa, use some or all of the seeds, depending on your preference, along with the flesh of the pepper.
