Avocado Melon Salsa

Love those summer melons!

I came across this recipe when I was looking for a side dish for some Mahi Mahi my husband caught back in June. (His fisherman’s tale to come soon.)

I turned to the internet and with just a few seconds came up with this from Epicurous’ website. I love cantaloupe, especially in the summer when smell of the fresh melons catch you when passing them in the market; and there’s nothing better than a juicy sweet watermelon.

You have probably made mango salsa many times and if you have tried a fruit salsa with cinnamon tortilla chips, that should be on your list of easy summer sweet endings to your meal. I’ve never really thought of using watermelon or cantaloupe in a salsa but why not; and I think avocado goes well with any fruit salsas. At first I was going to just try the cantaloupe but I had some beautiful watermelon left from the 4th so I thought the more the merrier and decided to use both the melons in this fruity salsa.

This Salsa makes a great side dish with fish or just about anything you might want to do on the grill. I mentioned fruit salsa above and I think this salsa would also be good with a bowlful of chips, but maybe a salty tortilla chips because who doesn’t salt their melons?

Hope you enjoy this.
