Summer 2016 Fresh Recipe: Homemade Melon & Pepper Salsa


* 1 green, yellow and red pepper diced
* 1 1/2 red onion
* 3 tbsps fresh cilantro
* 2 tomatoes diced
* 1 can each of white and black beans
* 1 can sweet corn
* 3 tbsps crushed garlic
* 4 tbsps olive oil
* a little brown sugar
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1/2 bottle roasted garlic rice vinegar
* diced watermelon (amount varies based on your taste!)


* Dice peppers and onion and place finished, diced vegetables into a large serving bowl.

* Chop fresh cilantro finely and add to bowl with diced tomatoes, white and black beans, sweet corn, crushed garlic.

* Dice watermelon based on your personal taste. Personally, we prefer small chunks no bigger than the pieces of diced pepper. Add as much watermelon as you’d like; again, personally, we prefer an equal watermelon-to-pepper ratio.

* Add olive oil, a dash of brown sugar, roasted garlic rice vinegar to bowl. Stir until ingredients are well-coated.

* Add salt and pepper to taste.
