Refreshing Watermelon Blueberry Salsa Recipe

This refreshing watermelon blueberry salsa recipe is absolutely delicious. It makes the perfect summer condiment or side dish. Serve it up with grilled fish or pork for a delightful summer barbecue. The sweet watermelon and bright blueberries provide a feast for the senses. This colorful salsa looks like a rainbow on your plate. Even better, this salsa contains no fat or cholesterol.

When you are choosing a watermelon, look at the bottom. There should be a pale spot where the melon sat on the dirt while growing. If the melon is ripe, this spot will be pale yellow or a cream color. If it is green or white, choose another. Watermelons do not continue to ripen after being picked. Now look at the rest of the rind. It should be free of blemishes and firm to the touch. The green color should be deep and dull, not pale or bright. There should be no soft spots. Look for a melon that is heavy for its size.

When shopping for blueberries, you want to look for dark blue berries with a silvery-white frost on them. Purple and green berries are under ripe. If you pick up a berry, it should feel heavy for its size. Berries should be firm and plump, not wrinkled. If you are picking your own berries, choose only the ripe berries, leaving the rest to ripen on the bush. Blueberries are an excellent addition to salsas used on savory dishes.

As well as the blueberries and watermelon, this salsa features tomato, onion, bell peppers, chili pepper, basil, and orange juice, so you can imagine the lovely, fragrant flavor it offers. The fruit and orange juice are sweet, while the basil and chili offer aromatic flavors, and the vegetables add a savory touch to the salsa, so you end up with a harmonious blend of flavors and textures.

Because this is spicy and fruity at the same time, there are plenty of different things you can do with it, including serving it with fish or chicken, trying it with pork, or even offering it with chips as a dipping sauce. This is one of the most magical salsas you can make, and it is jam-packed with healthy ingredients to give you plenty of vitamins and minerals too.
