Spicy Watermelon Salsa Recipe

I threw this together after an overzealous trip to the farmers market! My family loved it from the first bite. You can serve it right away but the best flavor is achieved after letting the salsa rest in the refrigerator for a few hours. —Andrea Heyart, Aubrey, Texas

"I made this salsa and it was delicious! Used the equivalent of cilantro and basil (dried) for the fresh herbs and 1/2 red onion, finely chopped, as I did not have a small red onion. delowenstein"
