Leftover Watermelon Recipe: Watermelon Salsa

If you have leftover watermelon from your cookouts this summer, use up a few chunks of it to make some Watermelon Salsa.  Here’s what you’ll need…


Use it as a refreshing change from “regular old” Mexican salsa.  Think of this as a fruity salsa with a tiny bit of spice from the jalapeno.  I cut jicama thinly and served jicama and tortilla chips for dunking.  It would also be good as a topping for fish… and I’m thinking chicken or pork tacos too.

    Wow! I never would have thought to do this, but it sounds like the perfect idea for one of these super hot summer days :) I also love the idea of watermelon gazpacho!

    What a great idea! Just happen to have some leftover from the Fourth, just enough for my husband and me. (We also just had Nigella Lawson’s watermelon, black olive and red onion salad — with lime juice.)

    I’ve always wanted to make a watermelon salsa and can’t imagine why I haven’t. This looks wonderful, Lori. Copying the recipe right now!

    I have a watermelon sitting on the counter waiting to be eaten… this sounds like the perfect idea. Although I am not a big fan of cilantro.
