May is a great month.  The weather is warming, the trees and flowers are popping up in the garden and winter is behind us.  May is known for Mother’s Day—very important day. Also May 1 is May Day.  May is National Smile Month and National Barbeque Month.  It is also known for Clean Air Month and Get Caught Up Reading Month.  I had a hard choice between National Sweet Vidalia Onion Month or National Salsa month.  I chose the latter—National Salsa Month.  So here is a fun recipe for Salsa

Watermelon and Cucumber Salsa   (for two)

2 slices about ½ inch thick watermelon, cut in small pieces
½ English cucumber or regular cucumber seeds removed
¼ cup cilantro chopped fine (or mint leaves or basil)
Juice from ½ medium lime (or more if you like lime)
1 packet sugar substitute

Mix together
Serve on fish, chicken or anything

Variation:  if you want more of a salad combination add:
1 teaspoon wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup feta cheese ( or bleu cheese or gorgonzola cheese)

Whisk the vinegar and olive oil together.
Drizzle over the watermelon mix
Add the cheese.
