Watermelon Salsa

For the letter 'W' under International cuisine theme, we have numerous choices eventhough my first choice i planned to cook up for today's post for my long marathon was wonton soup, then i dropped it coz the day i cooked it was not a prefect day to click as it was raining like anything.  Then one fine day, i decided to make gaspacho with watermelon and none wanted to have it so i dropped it again, actually the recipe choice of W took me enough time to decide and finally i went for making this watermelon salsa for a birthday party we organised at home for my son during summer. This salsa was a big hit among the adults, its such a light,refreshing and quick salsa,just tastes fabulous with tortilla chips.

A prefect party starter and definitely a crowd pleaser.Salsa is a sauce which goes usually for tomato based sauces, salsa is a Spanish word for sauce. There are many types of salsa usually vary throughout Latin America. Actually salsa are traditionally prepared using mortar and pestle eventhough blenders are used commonly now. The most popular and easy salsa is pico de gallo which is prepared quickly with raw tomatoes,lime juice,chilli peppers,onions, coriander leaves. This watermelon salsa is in my to do list since a long and finally i could make some during summer.This refreshing salsa takes hardly 10minutes to get ready if you have all the ingredients with you.Makes this salsa when you get watemelon abundantly and enjoy them.
