Pineapple Mango Watermelon Salsa is a Fresh, Tropical Condiment


Summer is the perfect season to indulge in Mexican-inspired dishes, dips and drinks. And watermelon is a versatile fruit with a flavor profile that pairs perfectly with many of the ingredients in traditional Mexican recipes. Sweet and juicy watermelon is a great way to cut the heat of spicier foods, and its texture lends an unexpected, satisfying crunch in dips, like this Pineapple Mango Watermelon Salsa.

You can serve this tropical salsa with chips for a fresh appetizer or snack. Or, you can use it as a flavorful, light sauce over fish, chicken or even tofu. It’s also a naturally dairy-free, plant-based, and allergy-friendly way to add flavor to tacos or burritos.
