This watermelon salsa recipe isn't just served south-of-the-border.

Watermelon is an all-American favorite fruit. We enjoy it all summer especially around the 4th of July.

Though you don't typically hear of it being served in a salsa, if you give this watermelon salsa appetizer a try, you may just get people talking about it for many summers to come.
