Summer Salsa

Grilled chicken again?
It is summertime, the perfect time to get out once the sun goes down. A little grillin, a little quality time on the patio.
This is a quick salsa that will dress up some plain grilled chicken. It is easy to throw together. I made it up while the chicken was sitting in a little WhistleStop Marinade.
Watermelon Mint Salsa
1 cup chopped watermelon
1/2 cup diced purple onion
2 Tbs diced jalapenos
2 Tbs finely chopped mint
1 Tbs finely chopped basil
1 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs lime juice
1 tsp sugar (if needed)



Combine ingredients and allow to sit for at least an hour for the flavors to blend.




We like it on salmon too! It doesn't keep well, so make enough to use up in one evening.
Y'all enjoy!

That sounds perfect with some grilled chicken or fish.

Stop by when you get a chance. I have an award for you.

Hugs!

Great minds think alike. Last night, I found a small melon in the garden, tons of Thai basil and some weird lemony mint. It came out so good, sort of Asianesque, that I jotted down the combo for future reference.

Yup - so I've never thought about doing this before - but hey, I'm a watermelon freak so this should be great!
