Tropical Tomato Salsa

IMG_3038

Summer is a great time to make delicious and healthy recipes with fresh ingredients from your garden or local markets. I love being able to make fresh salads and dips like this.

I decided to make this quick and easy summer salsa to take and share at a visit with our friends.  The reason I decided to make this recipe is that it is very easy to make, and includes some fresh tomatoes that I can use from my garden. I made this dip ahead of time, so that I can easily transport it ready made.  I will serve this salsa with taco chips.

Tropical Tomato Salsa

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium yellow and/or red tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped seedless watermelon
  • 1 medium mango, halved, seeded, peeled and chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, halved, seeded and finely chopped (I don’t like it too hot, so instead of jalapeno peppers, I used 1 orange bell pepper)
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey if needed  (I decided this was not needed)
  • Kosher salt ( I decided this was not needed)

Simple Directions: Combine the tomatoes, mango, red onion, and cilantro in a bowl. Next add freshly squeezed lime over the fruit mixture and stir gently to combine. Cover and chill until ready to serve or up to 2 hours.

In my make ahead version I added the watermelon at the last minute once ready to serve, just in case the watermelon went mushy.

  1. Have you made the version with honey and salt? Is it very different from your version? I’m curious to try both!
