After my modifications it was really tasty. I doubled everything else but the chiles (and watermelon). It was WAY too spicy with double the watermelon so I ended up nearly quadrulpling it. The flavor was nice but I did miss the punch of lime juice. Next time I will use only 1 seeded chile less onion and add lime. Thanks! Read More

We love salsas and relishes. I prepared this as directed and it just lacks something. It seems to us that the watermelon is not enhancing this dish much. Will toss it into our salad with our dinner tonight as an addition to the wild greens so I don't waste it. Read More
