Watermelon is one of my favorite things to eat in the summer–so I just had to post a watermelon recipe before the season ends! I saw this recipe at CountryLiving.com, and I knew right away I wanted to try it. The juicy, sweet watermelon gets a lively kick when it’s mixed with the jalapeno peppers, cilantro, red onion, and juice of fresh limes. Yum! It’s great served with your favorite tortilla chips. I think you’ll enjoy this unique combination of sweet, spicy, and savory flavors. This recipe makes 8 servings, and each 1/2 cup serving is only about 23 calories. Enjoy!
