Here's hopefully a small bit of inspiration, a half watermelon filled with watermelon salsa. I made it to take to a picnic at our friends' house this evening. You might like to make this over the Independence Day holidays, too. Yes, it will look better surrounded with chips and other food, but I took the photo before I left for the party.

Watermelon, Peach and Avocado Salsa
1 half seedless watermelon, innards chopped and drained
2 whole avocados, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 peaches, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeds and stem removed, chopped fine
2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Juice of 2 limes
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix and chill, then fill the scooped-out watermelon and take to the party with chips.

The Salsa book is on sale this month when you buy Easy Dips Using Herbs, too. Here's the link to my website.
Stay out of the heat if you can, drink plenty of liquids, move slow and be safe. Happy gardening!
