This Easy Watermelon Mango Salsa Is Perfect for After-School Snacking

We only have a little bit of time left to use up all of that fresh, juicy summer watermelon. Yes, it’s amazing on its own but we also love it because it can be used in so many different ways. One of our favorite ways is to transform it into a delicious watermelon and mango salsa. This salsa only requires a few ingredients and takes just a couple of minutes to make. It’s a great appetizer, after-school snack, potluck dish or movie night treat. You can easily adjust the spice level by removing the seeds and ribs from the jalapeño or you can replace the jalapeño with sweet bell pepper. This salsa is great on its own with some chips but you can also use it as a topping for tacos or grilled proteins like fish and chicken. It’s best to eat this salsa while it’s fresh but you can keep it in your refrigerator for 1-2 days.
