My watermelon salsa puts a sweet and spicy twist on a classic fresh salsa. Watermelon salsa is an awesome way to do something new in the salsa department, instead of serving the same old pico de gallo. I combine juicy watermelon with fresh cucumber, basil, onion and lime juice to create a sweet and tangy salsa that’s the perfect side dish for grilled fish, chicken, seafood or even just to top some tortilla chips!
I used my FLOW board to cut up the juiciest of fruits…watermelon! It works perfectly, the excess juice from the watermelon drains right into the tray, where it stays until you decide to save it, or rinse it down the drain.
