Serves 4 cups (1 L)
1 tbsp (15 ml) lime juice
2 tbsp (30 ml) light coloured honey, such as clover
½ tsp (2 ml) salt
2 cups (500 ml) seeded and chopped watermelon
½ cup (125 ml) English cucumber, seeded and chopped
½ cup (125 ml) red pepper, seeded and chopped
¼ cup (60 ml) finely diced red onion
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
¼ cup (60 ml) cilantro leaves, finely chopped
2 tbsp (30 ml) basil leaves, finely chopped
2 tbsp (30 ml) mint leaves, finely chopped


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey and salt until salt has dissolved. Add remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Best enjoyed the same day it is made.
  2. This salsa is great over grilled chicken, pork, seafood or on a vegetarian quesadilla. It is also delicious on its own simply scooped up with tortilla chips.
