Of course you can't have a Fourth of July celebration without food. Here's one of my favorite recipes I love to bring along to any picnic or barbecue. It always gets rave reviews...
3 cups finely diced seedless watermelon
1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup finely minced red onion
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1. In a medium bowl, toss watermelon, jalapeno, cilantro, and onion with lime juice. Season with salt. Serve at room temperature (or chilled).
*Use a combination of yellow and pink watermelon to make this a really colorful salsa!
*Be sure to take out the seeds and the inside membrane from the pepper... that's the extra-hot stuff.
*It's okay to make this early in the day and let it chill until serving. I've found that it's also good the following day.
*Serve with tortilla chips or slices of jicama.
What red, white and blue inspires you?
Thanks for stopping by...have a lovely day!
