Ingredients for Honey Dew Blueberry Salsa
I have wanted to experiment some unique recipe with Honey Dew Melon. Keeping its excess water content in mind I had to be careful while making this salsa dip.
I used blueberries because its summer and is at it’s peak. To top it all it is one the most nutritious, weight loss promoting and antioxidant rich fruit.
How to make Honey Dew Blueberry Salsa
- So for this, my first step was to roughly crush fresh blueberries in a food processor (only crush don’t blend). You may use frozen blueberries as well but make sure to defrost very well and drain the water to derive a thick consistency of salsa.
- Then I chopped honey dew melon as finely as possible to avoid big chunks in the mouth and also to make it easy to scoop the salsa with the chips. 🙂
- With fresh jalapeno the perfect spice level was achieved and fresh cilantro added perfect aroma and impressive flavor, with fresh mint leaves I brought a little peppery and minty flavor to this salsa recipe.
- For finishing I added salt and lemon juice and served with tortilla chips.
This Honey Dew Blueberry Salsa was as outstanding as I envisaged it to be.
It was an instant hit within my friends and family and I requested them to shhhhh till I post this recipe for all my amazing readers.

I have never heard blueberry salsa before but this looks really good.
