Watermelon Salsa

watermelon salsa

This watermelon salsa was originally contributed by frequent contributor Farhad (iranchef).

It’s a fruit salsa recipe with a nice mix of sweet and spicy from the jalapeño peppers. I think it is a Mexican condiment you will find yourself making over and over, especially on hot summer days.

Serving tips from the contributor:
Serve with corn or potato chips or serve on sliced oranges or cheese-filled manicotti.

I would think it would be delicious on grilled chicken too.

This is a fairly good diabetic recipe. Watermelon is high on the glycemic index and so not the best for diabetics to eat a lot of, but you won’t be eating a lot of salsa at a sitting, so it should be fine. It is also gluten free.
