Simple Watermelon Salsa
Switch up you regular pico with a juicy twist!
Watermelon has been all the craze this year so why not share one of my favorite salsas: Watermelon style!
I originally created this recipe for my Steak and Watermelon tacos but have since used it to add some pop to BBQ Chicken, breakfast items or just to snack on with some tortilla chips.
If you want some tomato, add some! If you want red onion over white – go ahead! There really isn’t any rules on making salsa and it’s very hard to mess it up.
This recipe can be made in advance and chilled in the fridge until you are ready to serve. If you like a hint of heat (like I do) add a jalapeno or serrano pepper. You can also sprinkle a bit of Tajin to get a salty chili flavor into the mix.
Check out the recipe below!
- 1/2 mini seedless watermelon or about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of finely diced watermelon.
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/4 large white onion you can also use red onion
- 1/2 bunch Green Onion chopped
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Place diced watermelon, white onion, green onion and lime juice in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Store in fridge in a sealed container until ready to use.
- The lime juice acts as a preserver so you should get a few days use out of the salsa if you don’t eat it all right away
