Zesty Watermelon Salsa
Summer is the season for all of the senses! Along with the aromas of grilling meat wafting through our evening air, the season brings a bounty of bold, beautiful, and delicious fresh fruits and veggies. And there aren’t many fruits that scream summer more than watermelon.
We’ve all enjoyed slices and chunks as a side to our summer feasts. Here’s a recipe that will bring watermelon to the center of the plate. One of the great things about this recipe is that it’s easy to modify to fit your taste.
- 3 cups chopped watermelon
- 1-½ teaspoons of lime zest (1 lime)
- ¼ cup of fresh lime juice (3 limes)
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- Freshly ground pepper
- 1 cucumber
- 1 mango
- 1 jalapeno
- 1 small red onion
- 8 fresh basil leaves
- ½ teaspoon of garlic salt
Serve it in a soft tortilla with grilled chicken or as a salsa dip with tortilla chips. Please share pics of your favorite creations!
