Watermelon Summer Salsa

Sharing is caring!

Oh, y’all.

How I love summer.

It’s warm, fun, I get to grill out all the time, get a tan, etc. Also, everybody seems to be consistently in vacation mode (I need one ASAP by the way).

And, I don’t have to freeze my ass off every time I walk out the door. I sooo hate to freeze my ass off. I’m definitely a summer/beach/pool/hot weather/not freeze my ass off type of girl.

So, in celebration of summer, I made y’all  –

Watermelon Salsa.


Aaaannnddd can you guess a certain little green pepper that happens to be a shining star in this beautiful concoction?

Ok, I know you know.

Watermelon Summer Salsa


  • 1/2 lb watermelon, diced
  • 1 large ear yellow sweet corn, grilled and shucked (or one small can yellow or white corn)
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp vinegar


  • Combine everything in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Eat.
  • P.S. - Grill the corn - it makes such a difference!

Aw, y’all know me so well.

My spicy little sidekicks.


Here lately, I have developed a sort of obsession with salsas. It’s like I want to make them every which way I possibly can. Maybe I want to be a master of all things salsa.

Like, if I want to really wanted to conquer salsas AND margaritas at the same time – could that be called Salsaritas?

Is that a restaurant – because I’m getting the feeling there is one. I probably should shut my mouth.

As long as it has jalapenos, all of the other ingredients just add to it and make it what it will be in the end. Wanna see a trend?

Hereโ€™s my Black Eyed Pea SalsaShopeg Corn Pico, and Crab-Mango Pico.


I’m thinking this is my favorite so far.

I’m sure I’ll think of more.
