Fresh, Fruity Summer Salsa

I love the vibrant taste and colors of fresh salsa in the summertime.  While I typically stick to traditional ingredients like tomatoes, onions, peppers, and garlic, I find this fruity variation very refreshing and oh-so-addicting!  On that note, you may want to make a double-batch, just sayin'.  It is versatile, so use the combination of fruits that sound good to you.


  • 2-3 cups of watermelon (or cantaloupe), 1/2-inch dice
  • 4 scallions, finely chopped (white and green parts)
  • 1 mango, 1/2-inch dice (or 1/2 cup of diced pineapple or peaches)
  • 1 inch knob of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley (or cilantro), with stems, finely chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes or 1 lemon
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients except for the avocado. 
  2. Once mixed, gently add in the avocado using a rubber spatula/scrapper.
  3. Enjoy with tortilla chips or spooned over grilled fish or chicken.
