Watermelon Salsa

Watermelon Salsa --definitely worth sharing!

Ingredients:
1/2 chopped watermelon
1 bunch Cilantro
1/2 Red and 1/2 Yellow Onions
Jalapeno
3 fresh limes *MUST be fresh limes

SO easy and quick, it's amazing how delicious this is!

Chop or cube 1/2 a watermelon and squeeze 3 fresh limes (don't use store bought lime juice, it won't be the same, promise!)
Knead the watermelon and lime juice together (this melds the flavors together)
Then add chopped cilantro, red and yellow onions (chopped about 1/2 of each onion) and 1 fresh jalapeƱo (more or less depending on how much heat you want). 
I brought it to share with a group of people and used 1/2 jalapeno. It was just enough kick for the wimps in the group. The watermelon does a nice job of toning down the heat of the jalapeno. I LOVE some heat so if I make it for myself, I will use the entire jalapeno.

Yep that easy and just like the farmers market. Serve with tortilla chips and watch it disappear. So unbelieveably refreshing!
