I made this watermelon salsa for dinner a couple nights ago and served it with sucanat/cinnamon tortillas for the kids. Not going to lie – this salsa is amazing. I eventually gave up on the sucanat/cinnamon tortilla and dished myself up an over sized bowl of this salsa to eat on it’s own. Don’t tell anyone but, I even ate it for breakfast the next morning. This knock-your-socks-off Watermelon Salsa is worth the all the cutting, dicing, and preparation. Your going to love it.
Watermelon is a beautiful fruit. Filled with juice, you may want to drain some of the excess juice before serving.
2 cups watermelon – finely chopped and seeds removed
1/2 cup cucumber – finely chopped
1/4 cup red onion – finely chopped
1/4 cup red bell pepper – finely chopped
1/2 to 1 whole jalapeno pepper – seeded and diced finely (I skipped this)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro – finely chopped
1 Tablespoon fresh basil – finely chopped
2 Tablespoons raw honey
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
tortilla chips for dipping
1. Combine watermelon, cucumber, onion, peppers, cilantro, and basil in a large bowl. Add honey and lime juice and stir to coat.
2. Chill for at least half an hour in the refrigerator – if your patient. I ate my immediately.
3. Serve with tortilla chips, sucanat/cinnamon tortillas, or if you are like me you can enjoy it solo.
