watermelon salsa

Yesterday I got some shocking news.

It’s August.

When did that happen? And why? And what’s up with all these back-to-school advertisements? Even though I’ve been out of academica for over a year (!?!?), I still find them offensive. I mean, I’m still trying to live my summer dreams.

The only rational response is to eat as much watermelon as humanly possible in the next month and a half. Today, I think I’ll eat my weight in watermelon salsa.

Full disclosure: This recipe is not my own creation. A neighbor copied it down for me many, many years ago. I have no idea where she found it, originally. I suspect it was Martha Stewart Living, or similar. 

Watermelon Salsa

  • 4 Cups watermelon, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeños peppers

Place diced watermelon in a colander to drain while preparing the other ingredients. Combine everything in a large bowl, and chill for at least 30 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or spoon over sweet potato tacos (recipe to come).
