Well, by now you know about my obsession with this new favorite thing called ‘WATERMELON’. So, that’s obvious that I can talk all day about watermelon goodness.
Oh, and these summer salsa bites are just so YUMMY!
Well, friends, I have always loved salsa, and now there is also watermelon in salsa. For me, there should always be some fruits in salsa. 😀
And summers are the best times to enjoy all salsa dishes. The warm weather and days are full of light, beach trips along with some fresh food!
When it comes to summer food — it should be light, fresh and packed with flavors. So salsa is the best to fit with the above. The combination of watermelon, red onion, oranges, cucumber and cilantro give a refreshing and natural sweetness, while lime juice and jalapeno add a nice bite.
It’s super simple, cool and refreshing with a nice little spicy kick. This recipe is quick and easy to prepare and tastes great with any crackers.

Watermelon Orange Salsa Summer Bites are wholesome snacks that fit very well into my new wholesome eating plan.
And these are fun for kids too.
They look pretty and full of gorgeous colors. And they taste amazing too. That’s a BONUS!!
You know when I started eating bites, I initially thought I will eat just 4-5 bites. But then, with every new bite, I told to myself, “I’ll only eat one more cracker.” And after that! Well, OK, maybe just one more. Or two, or three, or four….
The rest is kept in the refrigerator without crackers, to be eaten later.
And I did eat that whole remaining batch in my subsequent meal. See, I told you I am being a replica of my sister in terms of craving watermelon. 😉
You just need a sweet, ripe, pink, juicy watermelon — and the salsa would taste amazingly delicious.
This is so addictive, so I seriously suggest you to double the recipe if you are making for your family. You will all end up eating it too much! But don’t worry you would still not feel bloated, as watermelon is full of water. So you will feel lighter again after a while! 😉
So don’t forget to make some extra, or you will have an empty plate for yourself! 😉 I am not kidding! 🙂
