Yes.  You are in the right place.

Nope, we’re not turning on the oven today.

Just chopping up some colorful treats.

Then throwing them together.

For a surprising take on salsa.  Just add pita chips!

Watermelon Salsa


  • 1 English cucumber, seeds removed and cubed
  • 2-3 C seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 1 large or two small shallots minced (purple onion would also work)
  • 3 TBS (or to taste) fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2-1 C feta cheese, crumbled or cubed
  • Salt, pepper, olive oil and a mild vinegar to taste
  • Other tasty add-ins
  • Olives, tomatoes, basil, the kitchen sink


  • As you can tell, this is one of those, “there isn’t really a recipe recipes.”  Oh, I’m sure you could find a recipe for watermelon salsa if you looked, but, I’ve never looked. Once everything is cut, combine, gently toss and let marinate for several hours.  Yep…that’s pretty much it.

One thought on “Watermelon Salsa”

  1. How summery and refreshing! I make a Nigella salad with similar ingredients — watermelon, feta and lime juice-soaked red onions, but a salsa with cucumber would be a lovely variation. Thank you for the idea!
