Know Your Salsa
Did you know that salsa is the Spanish word for sauce? Or that salsa was being made long before the Spaniards? Salsa “sauce” actually originates with the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas who cultivated tomatoes and pepper plants and combined them to eat as a condiment. Today of course there are many variations of salsa, from the more traditional Pico de gallo, Salsa verde and negra to avocado, pineapple, corn – and of course – melon salsa concoctions.
Cutting open round melons on a flat chopping surface doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it’s surprisingly simple. First cut a half inch off the top and bottom of the fruit, so that the fruit sits flush on your cutting board. Then you can easily split the melon open and chop as desired. Another option is to use a baller to create bite-sized melon balls.
