My sister-in-law, Bobbi Jo, is at it again with two new fabulous recipes – perfect for summer! She is always sharing pictures on Facebook of the yummy recipes that she creates, and these latest two are totally share-worthy.
Watermelon is a great summer fruit to snack on when trying to stay cool and refreshed. Get ready to drool over this Watermelon Mint Summer Salsa recipe:
- 4-5 cups seedless watermelon, diced
- 1 cucumber, diced
- 1 red onion, finely minced
- 1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
- 1/3 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
- Juice from 2 limes about 1/3-1/2 cup
- 2 tsp hot sauce
- 1 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients, cover and chill for an hour. Serve with tortilla chips.
I can’t wait to make this next recipe. I love trying new drink recipes and this Watermelon Mojito is calling my name (and maybe yours too)!
Ingredients per glass
- 6-8 fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 cup cubed seedless watermelon
- 1-2 packets of sugar or sweetner
- Juice from half a lime
- 2 ounces of light rum
- Ginger Ale, 7-Up, or soda water
Use a mortar to mash the mint leaves and watermelon with a small amount of ice. I use the glass I’m serving in to mash the ingredients. Once it’s mashed fill glass with more ice, then add rum, sugar, lime juice and top with ginger ale, 7-up or soda water. Stir to combine. Garnish with sprigs of fresh mint and serve ice cold.
Stay cool with these summer recipes, and don’t forget to pin them for safe keeping! Other favorites from Bobbi Jo are Homemade Mac n’ Cheese, Classic Beef Stroganoff, Vietnamese Pho Soup, and Oreo Cookie Balls.
