an easy to prepare, refreshing and summertime recipe using Watermelon
What is Salsa?
Who doesn’t love a bowl of tasty fresh salsa on the table? Just perfect for scooping with corn tortilla chips or crackers, the salsa includes just the right balance in every bite. Fresh salsa is one of the best ways to add more flavor to your food while also delivering essential nutrients. Whether it is the traditional tomato and jalapeño, or even mango, strawberry; salsa is one of the world’s most popular condiments with a nutritional powerhouse.
Mostly one serving of salsa is 2 tablespoons, which is on average less than 10 calories. So just feel free to top all of your favorite foods with salsa. There is no need to limit your portions 😉 Whether you are eating salsa on scrambled eggs, grilled fish, tacos, or any of your other favorite dishes, it is a great addition to any meal!
The consistency of salsa can vary and is known for containing a considerable amount of liquid. Some recipes use the diced ingredients as is, while others process the ingredients into more of a puree before serving.
This is a perfect combination of sweet, savory, and crunchy salsa.
Every summer party, picnic, etc must include this fruit, Watermelon besides Mango. So why not make a salsa out of this!
The fresh watermelon in this salsa makes every bite extra deliciously juicy and refreshing. I have used only watermelon, shallots, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. The fresh lemon juice is used for a hint of vibrancy that helps to keep the salsa super fresh for longer. The herb along with lime juice gives it the perfect light and fresh taste of summer.
One can use some jalapeno to get a kick in the salsa, somehow I have not added.

One can add some diced cucumber or bell pepper (any color) to this salsa. But we love this salsa simply as mentioned above.
I will suggest using shallot here instead of red onions as shallots are milder and less astringent.
