Watermelon Salsa

Watermelon Salsa

Edited on Jul 09, 2008

This fresh, fruity salsa is delicious with grilled or broiled fish, chicken, pork or beef. Use balsamic vinegar instead of lime juice for a deeper flavor.


4 cup watermelon, seedless, chopped into small pieces
1 cup cucumber(s), seedless, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup scallion(s), chopped into small pieces (green and white parts)
1/2 large yellow pepper(s), chopped into small pieces
1 large jalapeno pepper(s), seeded, finely minced (do not touch seeds with bare hands)
1 1/2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, minced
1 1/2 Tbsp mint leaves, fresh, minced
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice


Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

*If you plan to make this recipe ahead of time, chop up and toss together the watermelon, vegetables and herbs, but wait to combine them with the sugar, olive oil and lime juice until just before serving.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
