This recipe sounded really good, but was really quite average. I did change a few things. I used fresh pinapple and fresh peppers instead of Tabasco. I also used half the amount of onion and the onion flavor still overpowered the dish.


We loved this recipe. It is a nice twist away from traditional salsa with your chips...It looks like regular salsa, but the taste was so refreshing. No one could believe it was watermelon, the entire office wanted a copy of the recipe. We've used it on fish too with equal reviews! Would absolutley make again.


I LOVED this recipe. It sounded delicious and that's what it was! I made a few adjustments for my own taste. Firstly, I thought this recipe had mangos in it, but apparently not. So here's what I did: I kept the watermelon. I substituted the pineapple with mango instead. I used 1/4 cup of onion, which was more than enough for me. I kept the cilantro and orange juice the same. I added 1/4 cup of pineapple juice. I used a little more hot sauce than required because I like spicy! I also squeezed in the juice of half a lime and a little salt to taste to give it that extra punch! I chilled it for 30 minutes to really get all the flavors nice and settled in. Came out DELICIOUS. My family loved it and I can't get enough. I drink the juice! Yum! I am thinking of making a ceviche next time with this recipe. :-)
