Watermelon Coriander Salsa

    15 minutes

    This salsa is spicy from jalapeno chilli but the watermelon cools it off perfectly. Great for anything cooked on the barbecue.

    Was the hit of the office potluck. One thing I found so as to not have it become too watery, is to let the chopped watermelon drain in a colander for a while; otherwise this has replaced my grilled veggies as the "you have to bring this to the bbq" item  -  27 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for a party last night and everyone liked it. I used the watermelon halves as bowls and served it with Hint of Lime tortilla chips. I didn't adhere to the stated measurements, but used whatever I bought. I hollowed out the entire watermelon, used an entire bunch of green onions, two bell peppers, 3 limes, 1 bunch of cilantro and 3 fresh jalapenos. I drained the watermelon and used the juice for watermelon martinis. P.S. Everyone probably knows this, but I didn't. Use gloves when you chop and seed fresh jalapenos. I didn't and my hands burned like fire throughout the entire night.  -  06 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    who knew something this simple could be so good! I had almost a half a seedless watermelon that was a little too ripe for eating. I doubled the recipe. Only changes I made were to add 1 extra tbsp. of onion(only had red onion), and used fresh garlic (1 large clove for the double recipe) and added salt to taste. I did only use 2 tbsp. of lime juice but grated the zest of some of the lime rind. This allowed the lime flavor to come through without the extra liquid. Just drain it in a colander after dicing and it gets alot of the liquid out. This was such a refreshing salsa, I ate it plain for a salad. This would also make a great summer side dish. Unbelievable blend of flavor and the textures. The sweetness mixed with the other basic salsa flavors was outstanding. I loved the crunch of it also. A wonderful salsa/sidedish that would also make a great conversation piece at a gathering; no one would expect watermelon to be used in something like this. Just look at the calorie/carb count also! Another great plus.  -  09 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
