How about those melons! Jerry’s been bringing on the most beautiful melons this year. The yellow watermelons are my favorite. And from time to time Jerry’s been known to accidentally drop a melon near the kids when the working members are out there. Too bad it has to be eaten right away!
Here’s a recipe my mom shared with me recently, and just in time! Not that watermelon isn’t great on its own, but here’s a refreshing way to use it, and it’s a perfect side dish for your next barbeque!
3 cups chopped watermelon
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 tablespoons lime juice (about 1 lime)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1-2 tablespoons chopped jalapeño pepper (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
After chopping, drain excess juice from watermelon in a colander. Combine melon in a large bowl with green pepper, lime juice, cilantro, green onion, jalapeño and garlic salt; mix well. Refrigerate 3 hours. Serve with corn or potato chips!
