Happy Meatless Monday guys! Today’s recipe is MM: Watermelon Salsa – simple, fresh and amazingly good with tortilla chips!
If you, like me like the combination of sweet and salty ingredients, you’re gonna love this sweet and juicy Watermelon Salsa. I was looking for a way to mix up my usual snack(talking about the tortilla chips, which I simply love, especially in front of the TV 🙂 ). I honestly can have them with almost everything, seriously. 🙂 But because it’s Summer, it’s hot and I was trying to stay on the healthy side I came up with this. Why not substitute the Tomatoes in the Pico de Gallo and use watermelon instead? Yes, why not :-). This is what actually this Salsa is, Pico de Gallo with watermelon instead of tomatoes. I kept it quite simple though and didn’t use lots of spices as I reckoned it wouldn’t work well. But of course, I added cilantro (coriander), lime juice, salt and pepper. The result was delicious and a whole pack of tortilla chips was ‘destroyed’ :-).
This Salsa is super delicious on its own. If you’re craving for a light and fruity Summer salad, this is it. I would probably add some Feta cheese, it tastes amazing with the watermelon! Whatever you choose, I promise this is simply delicious and guilt-free. And it only takes a few minutes! Also, it’ll be perfect as a starter when you have some friends around, im sure they’ll appreciate it! 🙂
Here’s how to make this Watermelon Salsa
- 200g watermelon, deseeded ind thinly chopped
- 1 small cucumber, peeled and chopped
