Watermelon & Jalapeño Salsa Recipe

superfood salsa recipe Watermelon & Jalapeño Salsa

Break away from the tomato! This SuperFood salsa recipe is similar to tomato salsa, but with a sweet and spicy twist that’s deliciously unexpected!

Servings: 2

Serving Size: About 1/4 cup

Volume: 1/2 + cup

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

1/2 cup seedless watermelon, cut into 1/2” pieces
1 teaspoon seeded and finely minced jalapeño pepper
1 tablespoon minced scallion
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

Directions
Place all the ingredients together into a bowl, then gently mix; you don’t want to be too rough with it and destroy those beautiful watermelon cubes. Because some watermelons are less sweet than others, you can add a little salt to punch up the flavor. Just make sure to taste it as you go; you can always add more salt, but it’s nearly impossible to remove it once it’s mixed in.

Why We Love It
This fresh new take on standard salsa plays a melody with your tastebuds: It’s sweet, spicy and tangy all in one punch. Serve it as a condiment alongside your favorite foods, such as grilled salmon or turkey. It’s also wonderful alongside peppery pork loin — especially if you’re serving the pork in corn tortillas. It can also be served as a snack with whole grain crackers, or sprinkled on a salad of spicy arugula.
