Happy Monday! My weekend was hot and steamy. Alas, that only applies to the weather forecast :P
Anyway, what are you cooking these days? I'm trying to use the stove and oven as little as possible, and when I do, my AC is on full blast. Over the weekend I made mango chipotle bbq shrimp and this Mango, Watermelon Radish & Cucumber Salsa to go with it. I'll share the recipe for the shrimp later this week.
Who said salsa has to include tomatoes? You know I love tomatoes, but sometimes I want to create something different. The sweet mango is a great contrast to the spicy watermelon radish, and the cucumber balances out the flavors well. If you want more spice, go ahead and add diced jalapeno. Also, if you can't find watermelon radishes, go ahead and use regular ones.
Mango, Watermelon Radish & Cucumber Salsa Perfect For Any Summer Meal
equal parts of peeled and diced mango, watermelon radish, cucumber
lime juice and salt to taste
freshly chopped cilantro
1. Combine diced mango, watermelon radish and cucumber.
2. Add lime juice, salt and cilantro. Taste. Adjust the flavors as needed.
How beautiful is this salsa!? If you let it sit for about 10 minutes, the flavors get to mingle with one another. You can serve this with chips or on top of grilled seafood or chicken. You can also eat it as a side.
What have YOU been cooking lately!?
Side note, I've decided to stop using watermarks on my photos. What do you think? I've also stopped putting titles on the first photo of the post. Opinions?
