1x 2x 3x Ingredients
3 cups, seedless watermelon, diced
3/4 cup ripe peaches, pitted, peeled, and diced (about 1 large peach)
1/2 cup yellow peppers, seeded and diced
1/2 cup orange peppers, seeded and diced

1 cup cucumber, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon minced Serrano pepper, seeded and finely diced (add more or less, to taste, may substitute with fresh or pickled jalapeño)
1 teaspoon kosher salt Juice of
2 limes Optional: 1 oz of fresh cilantro, chopped (I am team “cilantro tastes like soap” so I left this out)
Optional: 1 small red onion, diced (I’m not a fan)
Toppings, add to taste just before serving
Fresh ground black pepper
Fresh (extra spicy) or pickled (more mild) jalapeño
Crushed red pepper
Cotija or Quesco Fresco, crumbled
Dice ingredients to approximately the same size. Gently mix all the ingredients (except the toppings) in a large bowl and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour for the flavors to meld.
Top with fresh ground pepper, crushed red pepper, crumbled cheese, fresh or pickled jalapeño, and diced avocado before serving.
If you want to kick this recipe up a notch, add about an ounce of good tequila (to taste) before chilling. Just don’t serve this to the kids!
Be sure to chill in the fridge for at least an hour. The longer you keep this in the fridge before serving, the more the flavors meld.
If you manage to have any leftovers, Watermelon Peach Salsa will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
