Watermelon Salsa

Watermelon Salsa

In case you missed my last post, earlier this month I had a lovely vacation in Southwest Colorado. It was a wonderful chance to catch up with family and get some much needed R&R – and to learn several new delicious recipes!

I sipped on a delicious and refreshing Bayfield Breeze the first day I was there, but it wasn’t until a few days later at our family reunion I tried another must-post recipe: Watermelon Salsa.

I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical about how well watermelon would work when my cousin-in-law first told me about this salsa – but I was a convert after my very first bite. The slight sugary-ness of the watermelon is actually a perfect substitute for the subtle sweetness of tomatoes, and actually does a better job of absorbing the other flavors of the salsa for a more cohesive whole.

This salsa is a simple and delicious seasonal substitute for your run-of-the-mill Pico de Gallo. Whip some up today!

Watermelon Salsa


  • 3 cups watermelon, diced
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic salt


  1. Add the watermelon, green bell pepper, green onion and jalapeno to a large bowl. Add the lime juice, cilantro, and garlic salt and mix gentle until
  2. Serve with chips and a margarita (optional, but recommended!)
