Recipe notes 

  • If you’re unsure how to cut watermelon, watch this Youtube video, this is by far my favourite method. In this recipe, I sliced the cubes smaller than shown on the Youtube video.
  • For a more creative presentation of the recipe, serve the salsa in the shell of the watermelon. Click here to see an example.
