This is a good way to use up extra watermelon, but also a good excuse to buy some watermelon in the first place. I was surprised by how well the watermelon works in salsa.

Loved it! Was unsure about the use of vinegar vs lime juice but the combination with the sweetness of the watermelon was very tasty. I used red onion instead of white and added some red/green pepper. The amount of liquid is a lot even though I let the chopped watermelon drain in a colander. Will make again and use a slotted spoon for serving. Read More

Very unique! I had left over watermelon and found this recipe. I had nothing to lose and wanted something different to do with watermelon. This is absolutely delicious. I took it to work and some were hesitant but once they tried it they kept coming back for more. I will be making this more often...thanks! Read More

This is GREAT stuff! The only thing I did different from the recipe was to use white balsamic vinegar because I ran out of my white wine vinegar. It is spectacular! My daughter and I scarfed it down in no time! You won't be sorry to make this! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Delicious! My new go-to summer salsa recipe. I didn't have a jalapeño on hand so the salsa was very mild but still tasty. I halved the recipe using 1/3 c. of vinegar and purple onion. Our family of five finished it off in one setting. Read More
