Sweet, Spicy Watermelon Salsa for Fish or Chicken

Sweet watermelon, spicy serrano pepper, cool cucumber, fragrant cilantro and red onion make a summer watermelon salsa that is bursting with flavor.

There are a zillion recipes for watermelon salsa on the internet so please try every variation. I wanted more crunch so I added crisp cucumber and of course I love a punch of citrus from lime.

Sweet, spicy watermelon salsa for fish or chicken or as a salad. Easy Mexican salsa.

Serving Suggestions
I served my salsa with grilled salmon and zucchini in a lemon basil marinade. You could serve yours with grilled shrimp kabobs, margarita marinade chicken or fish, or topping green leafy veggies like kale or arugula with a few crumbles of cojita or feta, for a vegetarian Mexican salad. I could eat this salsa on tortilla chips, fish tacos or with a spoon.
