This is no fruit salad. This wacky and wonderful combo is delightfully refreshing! Our Sweet & Spicy Watermelon Relish recipe pairs juicy, hydrating chunks of summer-fresh watermelon, with crisp cucumber and cooling mint. Followed up with a subtle spicy surprise from jalapeño that turns this tasty topping into a sassy salsa sure to make you smile.
Sweet with a little bit of heat, this tasty, watermelon relish is the perfect topping for your veggie dog on a beautiful summer day. Or serve with summer barbecue favourites like saucy pulled jackfruit sandwiches, snack toasts, and more!
Skip the jalapeños if you (or your kids) aren’t up for spice. But the spice in our Watermelon Relish isn’t an all-or-nothing affair. Unlike store bought salsas, when you DIY you can dial the heat up or down! Use half a small jalapeño, seeded, and finely minced for a mild but flavourful version with just a hint of heat. Or delight the hot sauce lovers at your table—buy the biggest jalapeños at the farm stand and go for a larger dice! (Or select the small but stealthy spice of a more potent pepper if you so dare.)
