The Best Watermelon Salsa


Slightly  sweet, fresh and juicy. This watermelon salsa is made with a few ingredients but packs a punch in the flavor department. Serve with chips, tacos or just grab a spoon and dig in.



3 cups diced watermelon (make sure the pieces are fairly small, about 3/8” to 1/2”)

1/2 a large cucumber, peeled and diced to the same size as the watermelon 

1/2 a large red onion, diced to about the same size as the cucumber 

1 jalapeño pepper, seeds removed and finely chopped 

1/3 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves 

juice of 1 lime 

2 tsp Tajín Clásico *SEE NOTES

1/4 tsp sea salt 


To begin, add the watermelon, red onion, cucumber, jalapeño and cilantro to a large bowl. 

Pour the lime juice on top along with the Tajín and sea salt. 

Gently toss all the ingredients together, making sure not to stir, you don’t want to break up the watermelon pieces. When all the ingredients are well combined, taste and add more Tajín or salt as needed. I usually end up adding more Tajín because it’s just too good. 

Serve the salsa immediately with chips or over tacos. Leftovers will last in the fridge for a couple days. 


*You certainly don’t need the Tajín. So don’t worry is you don’t have it or can’t find it. Just add a little more salt and lime juice as needed.
