Zesty Watermelon Salsa

ncWMsalsa1nm

Watermelon is one of my favorite things to eat in the summer–so I just had to post a watermelon recipe before the season ends! I saw this recipe at CountryLiving.com, and I knew right away I wanted to try it. The juicy, sweet watermelon gets a lively kick when it’s mixed with the jalapeno peppers, cilantro, red onion, and juice of fresh limes. Yum! It’s great served with your favorite tortilla chips. I think you’ll enjoy this unique combination of sweet, spicy, and savory flavors. This recipe makes 8 servings, and each 1/2 cup serving is only about 23 calories. Enjoy!

ZESTY WATERMELON SALSA slightly adapted from Country Living

  • 3 cups finely diced seedless watermelon
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Tortilla chips (for serving)

Combine all ingredients, except salt, in a medium-size bowl. Then season with 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt, if desired. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
