You know how you have this huge 15 lb watermelon sitting in your fridge, and you can't decide what to do with it? Buying one of those puppies just for a family 3 is guaranteed you'll have leftovers. This is one of the easiest, most simple, consistently asked for recipes. I make watermelon salsa very single summer. Sometimes I add jalapenos, sometimes even a little habanero, but this particular recipe is for kids and adults alike. Everyone likes this salsa. It would be fantastic on grilled fish. There are 5 ingredients. Yes, you heard me. FIVE. We should call this HIGH FIVE SALSA.
1 bunch cilantro
2 white onions
2 tbs salt
Chop your watermelon and white onion into a small dice. Put in a large bowl.
Finely chop the cilantro-add to bowl.
Using a microplane, zest the limes and squeeze the juice into the bowl.
Add salt and mix all together.
Taste for salt, the watermelon is super sweet so I tend to have a heavy hand with the salt to balance it.
I've also used mint and lemon instead of the cilantro and lime. It's equally as delicious and a little more refined.
This salsa is great for tacos, and all seafood.
