Give Chips And Dip A Sweet Twist

Tortilla chips dipped in a tangy salsa often make the perfect opener to a meal. Salsa traditionally is made with tomatoes, but people often can find different fruits filling in for tomatoes or complementing them in various salsa recipes.

Watermelon’s high water content and subtle, sweet flavor contribute to its refreshing, some might say addictive, nature. However, this recipe for “Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa,” courtesy of the The National Watermelon Promotion Board, adds jalapeño peppers to the mix to bring a little heat to those cool watermelon pieces.
