Bekah was perusing cookbooks as she likes to do, sort of keeping on the lookout for fruit recipes for my series (did you know that this blog is a family project? ~smile~), and she saw a recipe for Fire and Ice Salsa. Watermelon, strawberries, jalapeño peppers...sounded intriguing!
Three of us loved this salsa!
We ate it alongside slices of rotisserie chicken, as suggested in the cookbook. (Yummy as a side dish!)
And then we tried it with some tortilla chips. (Yummy as an appetizer too!)
I am already making plans to serve Fire and Ice Salsa as an appetizer at a dinner party in a couple of weeks. This will be an all ladies' gathering, mostly mothers and daughters, and we think that this salsa will fill the bill as "girl food." For the record, it was Ron who did not care for it, so maybe it is "girl food."
Here is my very-slightly-tweaked-from-the-original recipe...
( Original recipe found in The Dinner Doctor by Ann Byrn)
1 1/2 cups chopped seeded watermelon
Do you like "fire" in your cooking? How hot do you like it?
