salsa = summer

My mother-in-law has brought this for us a few times, and I’m a little more in love with it every time I eat it.

Watermelon Salsa

  • 4 cups chopped watermelon
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallion
  • 1/2 large bell pepper (yellow or orange makes the best presentation), chopped fine
  • 1 large jalapeno, seeded and finely minced
  • 2-3 Tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons minced fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

 

Mix the whole works together; chill  and serve. Serve with chips, or on top of a light meat like fish, chicken, or pork. Honestly,  I just eat this stuff by the spoonful.
