Watermelon Salsa

Watermelon Salsa

We recently spent a fun evening at a friend’s house…eating, chatting, and playing games. Deea, the hostess (and one of my favorite people!), made this watermelon salsa for everyone. It’s so perfect for summer…and being that I am obsessed with watermelon, I had to post it! It’s perfect for those of you who don’t like tomatoes or perhaps can’t have them due to the acidity. Perfectly sweet and tart…and wonderful on flax chips or on top of a salad!

Thanks Deea for the photo and the recipe!

Watermelon Salsa
2 cups watermelon – diced
1 cups Nectarine – diced
Juice of one lime
1/4 cup cilantro – minced
2 jalepenos – diced (more or less depending on your spice tolerance!)
Sprinkle of salt
Turn gently together to mix flavors and chill one hour or longer.

    I had watermelon-tomato salad on the 4th at a friends house. When I get the recipe I’ll have to get it to you. This looks great too!

    Alright, you were led by God to post this one today =) Seriously, I was trying to figure out what to make and bring to our finance class at church tonight, and this recipe seems simple, nutritious, AND delicious. I can hardly wait to try it!

    Being one of those people who doesn’t like tomatoes this sounds yummy. When I was in Thailand we made a fruit salad with jalapenos in it and it was so good; this reminds me of that somehow. Hmmm, I should dig out that recipe too! I just borrowed my sister’s Vitamix. (She’s out of town and doesn’t know I borrowed it yet. :>) The Butternut soup sounds great.

    Hello, I am designing a website for a wholesale produce grower and distributor. I am including a recipe page to try and introduce people to different ways of using cabbage, potatoes, pumpkins, and watermelon. I found your recipe https://happyfoody.com/2008/07/09/watermelon-salsa/ and would like to include it and the accompanying picture on our page. It would be in the form of a pop-up window with a direct link to your page. This would also give you another credible link to your site. Please kindly take the time to respond with, a yes or no, thanks.

    What things can you eat with this. Are there any other uses besides meat. I would love to know as I do catering. I do a berry compote and use cinnamon chips. Delicious

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
