Triple Melon Salsa Snacks
Late summer means loads of melons at road side markets here. We've got some delicious watermelon and cantaloupe from the Green River. We like to scoop our melons into melon balls, skewer them on sticks, or chop them finely to make a salsa snack. This one did not disappoint. We used:
- Chopped watermelon
- Chopped cantaloupe
- Chopped honeydew
- Chopped green peppers
- chopped yellow peppers
- Canned pineapple
- Plus 1 TBL. of pineapple juice from the can.
An easy and yummy way to eat fruit salsa is to use whole wheat tortillas. We cut our tortillas into shapes we like. Sprayed on both sides with cooking spray. Sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Then cooked in a 400 degree oven for 8 or 9 minutes.
Watermelon has many benefits and is a great part of your kids diet. According to WHFoods:
Watermelon is not only great on a hot summer day, this delectable thirst-quencher may also help quench the inflammation that contributes to conditions like asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and arthritis.
Wow! Now that is a good reason to eat watermelon!
I'm headed out tomorrow morning to Blogher 11! I'd love to meet in person with any of you who will be there!!
