Watermelon Peach Salsa

watermelon for salsa!

These long, lazy summer days are sadly coming to an end. Kids are getting ready for school and fall fruit is ripening. But there’s still time to enjoy summer and all of its delights. Two of the best parts of summer are sweet, juicy watermelon and peaches. For sure, they are delicious when eaten by themselves. But there’s more than one way to slice a fruit… enjoy this summer salsa recipe from The Produce Box member & local blogger Kate Kelly (Life of a Ginger)! Great by itself and makes a delicious topping for grilled white fish or pork.


  • 3 cups, seedless watermelon, diced
  • 1/2 cup yellow peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup orange peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup green bell peppers, seeded and diced
  • 3/4 cup ripe peaches, pitted, peeled, and diced (about 1 large peach)
  • 1 cup cucumber, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced Serrano pepper, seeded and finely diced (add more or less, to taste, can substitute with fresh jalapeño)
  • 1/2 bunch of Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of 2 limes

Toppings, add to taste just before serving

  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Cotija or Quesco Fresco, crumbled
  • Avocado, diced


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 before serving, and diced avocado.
