Summer Melon Fruit Salsa


Where would we be without the internet?
There's so much incredible information there {as well as random, cool stuff to gaze at and drool over....aka Pinterest}. 
So many recipes and cool food blogs to savor.
This weekend, I went over to my friend Kc's house to celebrate her birthday. It's always a good time at her place, as she has the most lovely and interesting women friends, and we all appreciate good food {and a killer sangria!}.
I wanted to make something to bring that would be refreshing and easy to put together the night before. 
Fruit salsa on the brain. 
Probably from my last post, duh...the Coconut Crusted Chicken Tenders with Strawberry Mango Salsa. Dreamy.
So, onto the web I hopped and found a great site with some amazing looking recipes. Here's the one I chose....thank you Jessica from How Sweet it Is! for this delicious round up of salsa recipes. 


Summer Melon Fruit Salsa
Makes about 4 cups

Adapted from How Sweet it Is

1 cup chopped watermelon
1 cup chopped cantaloupe
1 cup chopped honeydew
1/2 large cucumber, seeded and chopped {I used English}
1/4 red onion, chopped
10-12 mint leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 limes, juiced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 avocado, chopped

Combine first seven ingredients in a bowl and stir. Add in lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Gently stir in chopped avocado. Serve immediately with chips of your choice or chill salsa.

{Happily Edible After Tip - I suggest adding the avocado in last, after other ingredients are mixed - everything stays pretty that way!}
