Watermelon, Corn & Lime Salsa

Summer! Hello?! Where’d you go? I’m going to hold on to summer for as long as I can with this Watermelon Corn Salsa. It is sadly one of my last summer recipes, before transitioning to pumpkin and apple things! When I went to the farm stand and saw the hayrides out to the pumpkin patch and apple orchards, I knew it was time to wrap up this summer season on a high note!

I picked up the last of the fresh corn available this season. Tossing corn (that’s extra juicy and sweet when left uncooked!) with little watermelon chunks is the perfect non-tomato salsa base. A bit of lime juice and zest adds acid and brightness, along with crunchy red onion, fresh garlic scapes, and jalapeño for that little kick. This salsa is really kickin’ on grilled chicken, tossed with shrimp, on tortilla chips…or just spooned right from bowl-to-mouth!!
