Fresh Chunky Watermelon Salsa

Fresh Chunky Watermelon Salsa

Watermelon season is here, and I’m so excited. You really can’t beat those Hermiston melons. The thing is though that I can never eat one before it goes bad. Oops. Especially since my significant other hates them. He doesn’t like fruit. I don’t understand it.

That being said, this fresh chunky watermelon salsa is a great way to use up a watermelon. You can put it on fish or chicken. It might even go really well with the correctly herbed and spiced pork. Check out this recipe on the next page.

This watermelon salsa is one that can go on meat, as I mentioned before, or you can also just say, “Forget that!” And haul out your favorite tortilla chips. A fresh, new take on chips and salsa. I personally love a fruitier salsa. The salt from the tortilla chips would mingle with this perfectly. I want some NOW!
