Watermelon Salsa

Yield 3 cups


  • 2 cups balled or cubed seedless watermelon
  • 1 green or yellow sweet pepper, cored and cut into small chunks
  • 2 scallions, very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley or cilantro, optional
  • Juice of 2 large limes, about 1/3 cup
  • Dash hot-pepper sauce, optional

How to Make It

  1. In a medium bowl, mix watermelon, pepper, scallions, parsley, if desired, and lime juice. Add hot-pepper sauce to taste, if desired (a drop will simply add flavor; for adults, you may want to add more). Chill for about an hour before serving.

  2. How kids can help: Scoop out melon balls; squeeze lime juice; mix ingredients.
