Does any other fruit say summer like watermelon does? Every summer party, picnic and backyard cookout from as far back as I can remember included watermelon. We love it sliced into triangles, cut up in a fruit salad, and blended into raspberry watermelon lemonade. This watermelon salsa recipe is another delicious way to enjoy summer watermelon.

Watermelon Salad

First of all, when choosing your personal size watermelon, pick one that will lay flat on a table. Cut the personal size watermelon in half, cut slices in the watermelon and scoop the slices out. Hollow out the watermelon so that it can be used as a bowl. Dice enough watermelon to measure one cup. Save the remaining watermelon for another use.

Drain the watermelon juice out of the cup, put the diced watermelon in a bowl and add the onion, cucumbers, peppers, jalapenos (optional), cilantro, lime juice, and black pepper.

Mix everything together and taste the salsa. Add salt and additional lime juice and black pepper, if needed. If there is excess liquid in the bowl drain it out and then scoop the salsa into the hollowed out watermelon half.

I was wondering if I would like this watermelon salsa as much as I like my pineapple salsa and I did! I’ve also tried adding diced tomatoes to this recipe and loved it that way too.
