  • Yields

    Serves 4-6


For garnish: finely diced watermelon, red onion, and avocado, fresh basil leaves and olive oil


  1. Place the watermelon rind, red onion, and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until finely chopped.
  2. Add the watermelon, tomato, basil, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Blend again until mostly pureed, with a little texture left. You can also puree until completely smooth if you'd like!
  3. Refrigerate to save (this tastes even better the next day), or pour into bowls, garnish, and enjoy.

Easy and delicious! 1 mini seedless watermelon and all the additional ingredients fit into one blender pitcher (they compress down as the blending begins). I used slightly less salt and added one additional Tbs red wine vinegar for a little extra tartness and the flavor is AMAZING! Don’t be afraid of the jalapeno. The end result isn’t overtly spicy at all.

I wish I could post a photo or two. It is so beautiful!
