Easy Watermelon Salsa Recipe for Cinco De Mayo
You know we have a thing for watermelons around here. Delicious, hydrating, and packed with good-for-you vitamins and antioxidants, watermelons are one of the perfect superfoods. We use watermelon seed oil as a signature ingredient in our hand and body care formulas because of all of its amazing properties for beauty and health. And part of our brand name comes from the watermelon :)
In addition to all things watermelon, I love coming across easy-to-make, healthy, delicious recipes that don't require many ingredients.
Now that the weather is starting to warm up in many places across the country, juicy watermelon sounds particularly mouth-watering. And this colorful watermelon salsa dish is a pretty and colorful addition to any table.
The ingredient list to make it is very simple: watermelon, cilantro, mint, jalepeno, and juice & zest from a fresh lime. I have always had an aversion to onions, so I left them optional, but feel free to add red onions if you prefer.
