  • 3 tbsp cilantro chopped

  • 3 tbsp lime juice

Notes

Carotenoids (like lycopene and beta carotene in watermelon) and polyphenols (like the anthocyanins malvidin and delphinidin in blueberries) actually work together to improve antioxidant activity in a synergistic way. This delicious take on a salsa is a refreshing addition to summer meals. Eat it alone or with your favorite summer dish! May we suggest it’s a nice compliment to fish, rice or chips.
