Mix it up! Add feta and blueberries to make your watermelon salsa even more colorful and flavorful.


Mix all ingredients together and serve immediately, with chips! Make your watermelon salsa even more of a standout by using the hollowed out watermelon as your "bowl."

Want an alternative to chips and salsa? Make tacos with watermelon salsa and either grilled fish or grilled chicken. A delicious light summer meal!
