I love this dish because it’s so simple and fast to put together. Before you begin, make sure you have the right size watermelon. You can make this decision based on how many people you are planning to serve. I chose a small size, because I am serving this to 10 people. Once, you have the right watermelon picked out, then dice your watermelon into ½ inch cubes. You will only need 4 cups worth of watermelon, so you can store and reuse the rest of the watermelon another time.

Serving size: 10-15 people                            Prep time: 15 minutes                   Cook time: 0 minutes


4 cups of diced seedless watermelon

1 cup of diced red onion

2 diced jalapeno peppers

½ cup chopped cilantro

½ cup chopped mint

1 ½ limes, juiced


In a mixing bowl, combine the diced watermelon, jalapeno peppers, onion, cilantro, mint, and lime juice. Gently toss all of the ingredients until they are well combined and a perfect mix. Serve immediately and enjoy.

Pair It With...

As a simple snack with easy access, serve with tortilla chips or on tacos.

As a healthy, delicious and decorative side, serve with grilled chicken or fish.
