Watermelon Salsa


This is a great way to use up watermelon! I usually buy too big of one, and then get tired of eating it everyday. But with this salsa I could eat the whole recipe!

I'd have to share with Brent though, as he really likes this too. It's just so light and refreshing.... and tastes of summertime! The combo of the sweet watermelon with the bite from the peppers, and the crunchy cucumbers is irresistible on top of the salty chips.

Before you know it, the bowl is empty!

1/2 c. chopped cucumber
1/4 c. red onion, chopped
1/4 c. chopped sweet red pepper
1 jalapeno pepper,seeded and minced
1/4 c. minced fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp. minced fresh basil
1 Tbsp.minced fresh mint (I omitted)

Mix all the ingredients together and drizzle honey and lime on top. Gently toss and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Best when served cold.
