Chilled coconut milk and honeydew with an infusion of mint and melon liqueur makes a delightful start to a meal. Served in a chilled small soup cup and garnished with a sprig of peppermint. Every time it gets wows! Volume varies with the size of the melon. I use 5-ounce servings.
Lemon-lime marinated fish. Serve with tortilla chips and margaritas.
This is the most wonderful ceviche ever. It is thick enough to be eaten as a meal and it is the only recipe I have found that kid's enjoy.

Actually, a true salsa is pretty smooth in texture, about the consistency of a milk shake, and is often cooked. Since this has finely minced pieces throughout and is not cooked, it would really be considered what is called a pico de gallo or salsa fresca.

Great Finger food for parties or tailgates. Serve with either ranch dressing or salsa for dipping.
