Watermelon Fruit Salsa

Watermelon Fruit Salsa Recipe


One of the best summer delights is watermelon fruit salsa. Yes it is of course this is right after you have been elbow deep in a nice juicy slice of the cool refreshing watermelon.

Did you know watermelon is really a member of the gourd family?


Capt'n Salsa is going to tell you a "whopper," now. Well here goes...

I remember growing up in the panhandle of Texas the farmers would cool the watermelons right in the irrigation ditches of their farms and if you put in a good days work at the end of the day you would be rewarded with a nice cold refreshing watermelon.

Boy that cold watermelon was really good and refreshing, not to mention well worth the wait.

Usually we would bust one open right on the ground and using our favorite "kitchen utensils" our hands we would chow down.The watermelon seeds were flying, in the obligatory "watermelon seed spit in' contest and the juice would be running down your face and dripping off your elbows.

What, dripping off your elbows?

How does it do that?

Well you see when you hold the watermelon up to your mouth the juice would run down your arms and off the tips of your elbows. Yes it does.

After feasting on the melon then you had to wash all those sticky body parts off. Yep you guessed it... right in the irrigation ditch...

Come on, Capt'n Salsa I'm Hungry!
