Pretty good... just really needs a squeeze of lime IMO

I was always a skeptic about watermelon salsa and then this came along! So refreshing; love the heat from the jalapenos that goes so well with the sweet watermelon and popping flavor of tomatoes. Cilantro rounds it out nicely. I tend to use cherry and sungold tomatoes in my salsas, so opted for those this time around. Delicious.

The heat of the jalapeños + the cool, earthiness of the cilantro + the sweetness of the summer's most perfect watermelon = this absolutely perfect summer salsa. I now have a totally new reason to look forward to watermelon season each year!

Its clear that this salsa is a crowd favorite. I am a big fan of different variations of salsa as I have tried avocado salsa, guava salsa, peanut salsa, tamarind salsa and many other salsas. This salsa is so refreshing and definitely one of my favorites. I will certainly be making this salsa a lot going forward.

This salsa was amazing on fish tacos! I used mahi mahi and the mix of flavors was delicious! I added a dash of garlic salt to really bring out the watermelon flavor and my husband and I both ended up eating a few bites of the salsa itself because it was so good! An absolute favorite!!

This was so easy to make! It's delicious, refreshing and packed with flavor. I used on tilapia but think it would do great with any other white fish or chicken. Only used half jalapeño because I don't like super spicy but even with half it was too hot.
