Watermelon Salsa


Happy watermelon day! I bet you didn’t know there was such a thing, did you? Well it’s true and today’s the day.

I went to Whole Foods on Saturday to pick out the perfect watermelon as well as get a few other goodies for the weekend, and I grabbed a small basket rather than a shopping cart, per usual. Well lo and behold they only had giant watermelons for sale and I was much too stubborn to go back and get a cart. So I ended up stuffing my prized melon into my tiny basket and piling the rest of my goods on top, then I proceeded to have Chuck lug the whole thing around the store for about 20 minutes while we got breakfast and coffee.
