Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"Personal summer favorite! Cool watermelon spiced up just a bit. A quick, light take on a traditional summer staple. When feeling adventurous, I love to replace parsley with mint for a fresh kick."

  1. Place watermelon in a large bowl.
  2. Heat grapeseed oil in a skillet over low heat; cook and stir scallions and jalapeno peppers until fragrant and warmed, 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon scallion mixture over watermelon; season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Sprinkle parsley over salad.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Grapeseed oil can be replaced with a very good extra-virgin olive oil.
  • Use a paring knife to poke the seeds out of your watermelon cubes.

Wow! We love this salad and have made it for ourselves and for guests many times. The sweet and savory mixture is great and for us, it's a bonus that it's dairy free.

Excellent! I used serranos in place of jalapenos, otherwise a great recipe.
