It doesn’t get more refreshing than this no-cook watermelon salsa. It's crunchy, sweet, and juicy, with an unexpected freshness from mint. Not only is this pico de gallo packed with vitamin C, you'll also find inflammation fighting antioxidants like lycopene.
This salsa is the perfect condiment for fish, chicken, pork, or grilled vegetables. Break out the knife skills—dice the vegetables into small cubes for taco-riffic texture.

Ingredient Variations and Substitutions
Any kind of melon will work well for this recipe so pick your favorite color, texture, and flavor.
If you think you don’t like mint, try it anyway—you’ll be shocked at how much delicious flavor it adds to this dish. If you do try it and truly decide it’s not the perfect addition to this recipe, omit entirely or replace with cilantro or parsley.
Cooking and Serving Tips
Allowing the ingredients to sit for ten minutes really allows the flavors to develop. You can prepare the salsa up to an hour in advance and keep at room temperature. If you prefer to make the recipe further ahead, store in the refrigerator.
Thinly slicing the onion helps to ensure big chunks of onion won't overpower the rest of the ingredients.
The salsa will be slightly watery.
