Christian also writes about food over at the Luke's Organic blog, where she posted this watermelon salsa recipes using Cha-cha Lima, or Alliyum, or both. I'm going to make a TON of it.
1 ½ C of watermelon, cut into 1/2” cubes
1 shucked corncob’s worth of kernels
½ a small zucchini, cut into ½” cubes
1 green onion
1 jalapeno, deseeded and minced
(1/4 leftover cold chopped beets, optional)
Juice of half a lime
Coarse ground black pepper
1 tsp. Saltlickers Cha-Cha Lima Sugar* (if you like a sweet kick) OR Saltlickers Alliyum* salt (for more savory)
Combine all into a bowl and enjoy with Luke's Organic multigrain chips, or, as a side dish/salad.
"Who'da thunk the beet/watermelon combo would be so delicious?" Christiana asked in our email exchange.
"I would think it would be great! The family veggie stand next to us at the Downtown Des Moines Farmers' Marke gave us FOUR bunches of beets on Saturday. It was like that joke where someone breaks your back windshield and throws in an accordion," I replied.
