Watermelon Salsa

August/September 2005

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (86 votes)

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.

"I have made this salsa so many times - easy, delicious, great for a big crowd - people always look forward to it and are suprised to find out it is watermelon! A gem of a recipe! "

What happened to the tomatoes?

The title insinuated that watermelon AND tomatoes would be in the recipe. But when I read the recipe, no tomato...bummer. Watermelon and Tomato Salsa. Turn a staple summer fruit into an exciting new snack. "Eating Well’s Watermelon and Tomato Salsa will be a sure hit at any summer fiesta. Not only is watermelon a delicious way to stay hydrated - this lycopene-rich fruit is great for glowing skin and radiant hair."

So good and refreshing!!!


Great Summer Salsa

Have made this many times. I'm surprised no one has mentioned cutting the watermelon in half and removing the watermelon for the salsa, using the hallowed out shell as a serving dish. Simple and festive...

Sweet and spicy
Excellent Flavor

I love watermelon so much that I am loathe to make recipes with it. I'm glad I controlled myself long enough to make this recipe - absolutely delicious. I don't even need tortilla chips - tastes great alongside food on the plate.

Love combo of fruit, jalapeno peppers and lime juice
I wonder how this would be with pineapple?

I have made a similar recipe with mango, and have used watermelon in green salads (fantastico!). I was intrigued by the combination of watermelon and pineapple in the picture, but there is no pineapple listed in the recipe. I would love to grill up some pineapple and use it. Mmmmmm!
