My distaste for vegetables goes as far as salsa.

I remember as a child dipping a chip into salsa and allowing all the veggie chunks to slide back into the bowl, and then I inevitably ate a chip that was covered in salsa ‘juice.’

Things still haven’t changed – I am not a fan of chunks in salsa. The only difference is that these days I’m usually 3 margaritas deep while scooping the salsa. Makes the chunks a lot less painful.


Anytime I can, I am going to replace vegetables with fruit.

Because let’s be real – no one but me considers bacon an appropriate substitute for veggies.

Sweet + savory is a must-have combo in my daily life. Ideally, it wouldn’t come in the form of fruit and veggies, but I can’t afford a new wardrobe. I need too many new pairs of shoes.


Another reason I love this salsa?

It is pink.

Give me sparkles and glitter and a crown on my head. Anything glitzy catches my eye. And I’d be lying if I said I don’t pray every night for Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth to have a relationship in real life.


Fresh Watermelon Salsa

1/2 cup chopped watermelon

1/4 cup chopped tomato

2 tablespoons chopped red onion

1 tablespoon chopped jalepeno

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

the juice of 1 lime

salt & pepper to taste

Toss all ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.

Serve with tortilla chips and cinnamon-sugar pita chips.



So the real problem with vegetables? Their color. If only they were pink, then I would be sure to eat some.

And no, tomatoes or radishes or beets or whatever don’t count. Because I said so.
