Mojito Melon Salsa.

It’s officially summer now, right?


Well… okay… June 21st or whatever. But still… it’s summer. It went from 45 to 90 degrees in a matter of days and the back of my legs will now stick to every single chair I sit on until October 1st. Sexy. Sexy summer. It’s summer.


Sweet. Let’s do this thing.

Raise your hand if you like mojitos!

I wish I had 34 hands. For reals.

Actually… you’d think I did have 34 hands for the amount of mojitos I drank this weekend. Mint + rum? Totally my thing. Dehydration? Not my thing. Mr. How Sweet drinking 6 mojitos then going to bed without a Breathe Right save-my-marriage nose strip? Also not my thing. Snore city. He was banished to the couch.

Then I made up for it the next day because I combined a million juicy melon chunks and fresh mint and a bunch of lime spritzes and piled it high on salty pita chips. Some days we drink our mojitos and other days we eat them. I love balance.



Mojito Melon Salsa


  • 1 cup chopped watermelon
  • 1 cup chopped cantaloupe
  • 1 cup chopped honeydew
  • 1/2 large cucumber, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 10-12 mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and add lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and serve with chips of your choice. I also think this would be fabulous on tacos!

You may have noticed How Sweet it Is has a new look! It’s what I’ve wanted… clean, white, plain, simple, easier to read, etc. There still are a few kinks to work out so bear with me please, especially since I hate change. Nothing else is changing with the site, however in order to keep it more simplistic I’ve removed a few bells and whistles. I need more simplicity in my life… don’t we all? You can still access my favorite workouts on my about page for the time being. And Fit Bites is now called Crumbs because, well… I like that name better. I’ll be adding to the site a bit more in the coming weeks. Thanks to Ryan from NoMoreBacon for the great job he did. Me + NoMoreBacon… who woulda thunk it?
