Watermelon Cantaloupe Salsa (V/GF)

If you’re anything like me, you probably bought an abundance of watermelon this summer. If that’s the case, I have the perfect solution for you!

Whenever my fridge is overflowing with fruit, my go-to move is to turn it into salsa! And that’s how this beautiful Watermelon Cantaloupe Salsa recipe came to be.

I used what I had on hand, which was: watermelon, cantaloupe, mint, cilantro and lime juice. A perfect recipe for some serious delicious salsa. However, I think I’ll throw in some hot peppers for heat and possibly some jicama for texture and extra flavor next time! Although, this recipe is truly so satisfying as is. Perfect for people who don’t like heat in their salsa!

Turns out, watermelon is an awesome tomato replacement (not that tomatoes aren’t great, of course!) They’re both equally juicy and sweet. I’ll definitely be experimenting with using subbing tomatoes with watermelon some more very soon. (I smell a BLT recipe comin’… or should I say ‘TLW’?) I’ll let you guys wonder what those initials mean. (;
