Watermelon Jicama Pico de Gallo

I feel like this is the first post I’ve really wanted to complain about the weather. Texas weather. Need I say more? Yes, I need to. It’s already hot and the rain is creating this chewable mugginess that leaves you craving something cool, crisp and refreshing. The funny thing is this month’s Recipe ReDux is all about taking tapas style eating outside for al fresco dining, so outside eating calls for a seriously refreshing recipe when in Texas!

So could there be a more perfect time to share one of the most refreshing snacks/apps I enjoy making: Pico de Gallo. BUT not just any pico de gallo- a totally revamped pico that has complex texture, juicy sweetness and still some zing. ​SO MUCH FLAVOR IN JUST ONE BITE.

KISS Tip#1 : If jicama lacks moisture, squeeze additional lime juice and let sit 5-10 minutes before mixing all ingredients.

This recipe is so yummy I made it for a National Watermelon Day segment on TV last year!
KISS Watermelon Jicama Pico de Gallo

2 cups finely diced watermelon
1/2 cup diced jicama
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro
Juice of 2 limes
1/4 tsp finely chopped garlic
1 finely diced and seeded jalapeno, if desired
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Combine all ingredients and enjoy on top of your favorite corn tortilla chips or cinnamon sugar pita chips for the perfect bite of refreshing pico de gallo!

KISS Tip #2: This pico de gallo’s taste and consistency is even better the next day after all flavors have marinated, but is still delicious for immediate enjoyment!

    1. Hi Farrah! Thank you! I love it with tortilla chips as a simple snack/app, but it’s also pretty good on top of grilled chicken or salad!

  1. Wow! So vibrant and pretty. And it sounds so refreshing. We’re starting to get pretty hot weather here in California (though we don’t get the humidity) and this sounds like the perfect way to cool down.
    I hopped on over from Recipe Redux to say hi =)

    1. Hi Kimmy. Thanks so much for stopping by! It seems to be warming up in a lot of areas right now! Hope you enjoy this if you get to make it and thanks so much for stopping by!
