  • 1/2 cup hot pepper or red pepper jelly (if you don’t like spicy, use peach jelly)
  • 1/4 cup lime juice, fresh or bottled
  • Optional: 1 Tablespoon lime zest
  • 2 cups seeded and diced watermelon
  • 1 1/2 cups peeled and diced fresh peaches (I used a combination of yellow and white peaches)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh chives or green onion stems
  • Fresh basil sprigs, for garnish


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together pepper jelly (or peach jelly), lime juice, and lime zest (if using)
  2. Stir in watermelon, peaches, basil, and chives. Toss ingredients to coat everything evenly. Serve with tortilla chips or in small cups as a fruit side or salad.
