I always forget how amazing watermelon is, until I eat it. Especially on a hot summer day! Watermelon has everything you need to beat the summer heat. It’s amazingly delicious and thirst-quenching. After learning about the different Vitamins in my Micronutrient class, I’ve learned (in more depth) how incredibly important vitamins are for us and their mechanism functions in our body. Here’s a little nerd talk for you – Watermelon is an excellent source of Vitamin-A which is a powerful natural anti-oxidant. It is essential for vision and immunity. It also is required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin. It also contains Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), Vit B1 (thiamine), Vitamin C and Manganese. I won’t go into detail about each but just know they are all important and essential! So enough nerd talk…! I love my fruit salsa’s and this was my favorite so far. Like all the fruit salsa’s I make, this goes well with anything. Especially fish!
Ingredients (serving size depends on how much you want to make – I made a portion for 2 servings. Adjust as necessary):
2 Cups Diced Watermelon
1 Cup Diced Mango
1 Cup Chopped Cilantro
1/2 Cup Chopped Red Onion
Cut the watermelon into little squares – add to a bowl.
Cut 1/2 a mango into little squares – add to the bowl.
Dice your red onion into small pieces – add to the bowl.
Finely chop the cilantro – add to the bowl.
Squeeze fresh lime juice and mix together.
You can really eat this with anything – fish, chicken. I paired this with shrimp screwers and it was perfect. Or, if you want to use this as a salsa for a summer party, that works too! Enjoy! 🙂
