As the weather gets warmer I love to tempt my palatte with lighter fresher dishes. Now is a great time to savor all those delicious fruits, veggies and fresh herbs available at your local super market! Watermelon is a favorite of mine, although its hard to figure out what to do with such a huge fruit and I don’t like to waste anything. Here is a fun, off beat salsa that is light and delightful. It serves up great with some simple tortilla or pita chips and will wow your friends. No need to get to exact with your measurements, its all about what tastes good to you. Feel free to add other fruit, veggies or herbs if desired, I imagine mangos or chopped strawberries would be a nice addition to this fruity dish.
¼ cup lime juice
4 cups chopped watermelon
½ cup chopped red or white onion
¼ cup mint leaves chopped
2 tablespoons finely minced jalapeno or green chili
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
½ cucumber chopped
Salt & pepper to taste ( I always use fresh ground pepper when possible)
Combine all ingredients, toss gently. Refrigerate a few hours or overnight before serving. Serve with tortilla chips or pita chips.
