Tropical Watermelon Salsa


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 tropical watermelon salsa. But beyond serving it with chips, you can use this tropical watermelon salsa as a surprising fresh sauce over fish, chicken or tofu.
