  • Small watermelon (6 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 small jalapeno chiles
  • Thinly sliced jalapeno (optional)


  1. Cut watermelon into large chunks (you should have 6 cups). Puree half the watermelon, lemon juice, and salt in a blender until combined. Cut ribs and remove seeds from chiles, and cut into 1-inch pieces. Add to blender with remaining watermelon; pulse until chunky, 2 or 3 times. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Stir well, and garnish with thinly sliced jalapeno if desired before serving.
