5 INGREDIENT WATERMELON SALSA

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July holiday! The weather in Cleveland was amazing and we spent a lot of time outside, grilling out and at Lake Erie relaxing. Today’s 5 Ingredient Watermelon Salsa is the perfect summer salsa and is a recipe I use a lot when I need to whip up a quick appetizer to bring to a summer BBQ or a snack to have on hands on a hot summer day.

This salsa also works great on grilled fish or chicken or even as a salsa for these Easy Cod Fish Tacos or these Easy Fish Tacos with Spicy Pineapple Salsa. As the name implies this salsa only uses 5 ingredients, making this a salsa you can whip up in under 10 minutes. You can’t beat that!

In my house watermelon goes so fast! If I buy a large watermelon and cut half of it up it will be gone in no time. My kids devour it! I like to use a portion of the watermelon to make this salsa to have to top our grilled chicken or fish. I also like to have it to snack on when I get hungry during the week. You can easily mix up the ingredients to use what you might have on hand.

We do a lot of entertaining in the summer months. If you are into entertaining in the summer you have to check out some of the below recipes that are perfect when hosting a summer party:

If you love appetizers check out these Cucumber Hummus Bites, White Bean Artichoke Dip and this Eggplant Dip {Baba Ghanoush}. If you have a garden the cucumber bites and the baba ghanoush are great recipes to use up those summer veggies.

For the veggie lovers add these summer salads to the mix: Kale Cucumber Tabbouleh, Fattoush and this Summer Orzo Pasta Salad.

And of course we all love grilling in the summer! If you do too check out this Grilled Tandoori Chicken, these Hawaiian Chicken KabobsMediterranean Chicken or Southwestern Hamburgers with Sweet Guacamole.

I don’t know about you, but a meal that includes this 5 Ingredient Watermelon Salsa, a big bowl of salad and some grilled chicken sounds like the perfect summer pairing. Oh, and a glass of white wine of course. 🙂

This looks delicious and so refreshing! I plan to make it but I'm confused about the one-cup yield...given the amounts of all the ingredients; how many servings does it actually make?
