|A very refreshing take on a salsa|
I made with ingredients that
just naturally compliment each other...
Prep: 10 Mins.

1-1/2 cups watermelon, rind removed, seeded, and diced
1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded, de-ribbed, and minced
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves, finely sliced
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon honey (for recipe, click here: Alaska Fireweed and Clover Honey - Homemade)
pinch of table salt
--Club Crackers or Tortilla Chips
Add the watermelon, cucumber, jalapeno, onion and basil in a medium-sized nonreactive bowl, and gently fold to combine.
In a small bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, honey, table salt, and whisk to combine, and then add to salsa mixture in medium bowl, folding to combine.
Chill for a minimum of 30 minutes for flavors to meld, and then drain excess liquid, if desired.
Serve in a decorative non-reactive ceramic or glass bowl, with Club Crackers for scooping. – Enjoy!
Tip: This is also very refreshing to serve as a side with many variations of fish dishes, esp. halibut – oh...and pork as well ;-) Some also like to eat this Lovely Lime and Mint Watermelon Salsa with tortilla or pita chips.
