This interesting recipe comes from several sources.  I first saw it in Costco’s magazine.  I didn’t try it because quite honestly, the combination of ingredients seemed too strange.  Really?  Watermelon and jalapeños?  Too weird.

But then my friend, Nina, made it and brought it to work.  I was smitten!   I bought the ingredients that week and made it for my family, who proceeded to devour a whole bowl of it in lightning speed.

So, although it is not the kind of ingredients that you can keep on hand so that you can just throw it together, it is worth a special trip to the grocery store to make it.   And it is super simple, whether you use a chopper, as I have, or simply chop with your trusty knife.  Whatever way you go with it, it is fast and easy—and usually disappears about as quickly as it takes to make it.

I have seen several variations of it online, so you can make it however you think you would desire.   I made it this time with the amounts as listed.  Feel free to double up on jalapeños or cut way back, depending on your bravery for hot peppers.

I especially LOVE it on fish tacos.  On chips, on broiled chicken breasts.  I am hopeless in its presence.  Sometimes I just grab a spoon and eat a bowl of it.  Which is perfectly alright for you too!

3 green onions, sliced thinly

1 green pepper, chopped

¼ cup jalapeños (I used the “sliced in the jar” variation, but you can use fresh)

About 3 cups of seedless watermelon, chopped into small cubes

¼ lime, squeezed

Cilantro, as desired (or not, if you don’t love it)

Dash of garlic salt—more or less as desired

Thinly slice the green onions.

Chop the watermelon, jalepenos and green pepper.

Squeeze one quarter of a fresh lime.

Chop a few sprigs of fresh cilantro– or not, if you don’t like it.

Sprinkle with about 1/4 t. of garlic salt, more or less to taste.

Mix all the ingredients and chill.  Or, can be served immediately.  It is better if given time to meld the flavors and chill, but you may not be able to wait.  I can’t.

Serve as salsa or as an appetizer.  Makes about four cups.
