Fruit Salsa...

We're used to veggie salsa..well here's a tantalizing recipe for Fruit Salsa.  So easy to make..you can make it in your sleep.  Please let me know if you do!  And feel free to add or subtract any fruit that pleases you...can't go wrong!  Enjoy.


FRUIT SALSA

1 cup chopped cantaloupe
1  1/2 cups chopped pineapple
3/4 cup chopped orange sections
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup chopped, peeled mango
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
2 tbls. chopped cilantro or fresh basil
1  1/2 tsps. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper or to taste
2 tbls. lime juice
1 tbls. honey
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped

Combine all, tossing gently.  You can serve immediately, or refrigerate for several hours.  Serves about 6.  Serve with grilled chicken, turkey burgers, fish, anything!  Plain, eat it over the sink, or with chips...

Or with chocolate..no, no sorry about that.  Hard to break the chocolate with everything habit.

I think a fruity white Riesling would go with any of the recommended dishes.  Again, enjoy....

This looks perfect for summer! Thanks, Lyn! Why do some things always taste better if eaten over the sink?

Lyn said...

Hi Willow..
It is yummy..thanks..
And I think maybe it's the savage in us..eat and run?? I'm only saying...

Derrick said...

Oooo, new header! Sounds lovely, Lyn. I make a pineapple salsa, similar to this, with red chili to go with gammon steaks. Certainly perks up the palate!

Derrick said...

Hi Lyn,

Gammon is what we Brits call uncooked ham. It only becomes ham once it's cooked!

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
Thanks for the info..I'm sort of a lapsing vegan, so I have to know these things!!

ooh, that looks so good, lyn! i had to laugh when you said it went with everything except chocolate...too funny!
i finally located the dark chocolate with chile that you wrote about many moons ago. my first bites were in a hot car on my way to visit a friend and i have to say i was not impressed. it wasn't until i had eaten it frozen (having left it for hours in the hot car) that i was truly in love! the chocolate melted like butter on my tongue and that little burn was certainly worth my wait in finding the elusive bar!

Lyn said...

Hi sheri-
Hope you like this one too.
About the chocolate, I keep mine in the fridge, forgot to mention that. I too discovered the chili sneaking up on me when cold..
when I'm dying,slip some into my mouth..last taste of life..I know I'm nuts!!!

This sounds really appetizing however, I would leave out the canteloupe as I just can't bear the taste.

Lyn said...

Hi Sylvia-
Oh, it's good to add or subtract anything you wish..more fun that way! Thanks..

I stuck to your recipe but added the zest of the lime and a shot of Petron tequila.
