The slightly sweet – salty combo is amazing. My favorite fruit to use is watermelon, but they are hard to find in the winter. Try using anything you can find: mango, pears, blueberries, kiwi, strawberries, pineapple, oranges, cherries, canteloupe…whatever you can get your hands on. The perk of using a watermelon is that you can use the rind as a bowl. To do this, you’ll need to find a small watermelon that has a flat-ish end. If you’re not using a watermelon, a glass bowl looks nice for presentation. Ingredients: 4-6 cups of chopped fruit Medium onion, chopped 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced 1-2 jalapeño peppers, de-seeded and minced 2-4 tbsps of cilantro, chopped Juice from one lime (may want more if the fruit you choose is not juicy) Salt Directions: Combine the chopped fruit, onion, garlic, peppers, cilantro and lime juice in a bowl. Salt to taste. Serve with tortilla chips. If you are feeling adventurous, try adding mint or feta cheese!
