Foody Friday: My weird yet delicious watermelon salad

Here it is the recipe that made me famous!
Actually I debated revealing the original recipe and couldn't make myself do it - it's one of my secret recipes - so here is a very refreshing variation. The ingredient list looks strange but the salad is excellent!

Sweet and Spicy Watermelon salad

3-4 cups watermelon is small chunks, try to avoid getting too much juice in as the salad will make plenty of juice on its own
1 small tomato or plum tomato, chopped
1/4 of an onion, sliced into thing rings
1 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup very small cubes of pepper jack cheese
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
2 Tbs good quality red wine vinegar

Toss all together in a large bowl with a lid. Allow to marinate and chill for at least an hour, occasionally turning the bowl to allow flavors to combine.
It's the best thing you ever tasted. It looks very pretty is you use red onions and yellow tomato to add some color.


  1. Living in a country where melons are sold for less than half a dollar you may imagen how often they are finding themselves upon the table. Will try it and inform you of result.

  2. Hmm. Interesting sounds good :)
