Watermelon Salsa with Homemade Tortilla Chips

If you’re looking for something to snack on that epitomizes summer, try this Watermelon Salsa with Homemade Tortilla Chips!

Tips for choosing the best watermelon:

• Choose melons that feel heavy for their size. This indicates juiciness and a higher concentration of flavor.
• When selecting watermelon, look for melons that have a yellow spot somewhere on the rind. These tend to be sweeter melons. Also choose a rind with a matte appearance. A shiny rind can be an indicator of an underripe melon.
