Watermelon Salsa

Last weekend, I attended a grilling demonstration at the 8100 Mountainside Bar and Grill in the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek, CO.  Pascal and Reese, the Executive Chef and Chef de Cuisine for the restaurant, prepared this salsa to serve with salmon. It would also be an excellent complement to chicken. Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits… and this is now my favorite salsa.

They will be holding 3 more grilling exhibitions throughout the summer (July 25th, August 8th, and August 15th). If you are in the Vail Valley, stop by the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek and sample some delectable morsels with expertly chosen pairings while picking up great culinary tips in an idyllic setting. The demonstration starts at 4:30 on the patio.

    That sounds like a refreshing summer dish. What type of vinegar would you suggest to substitute for champagne vinegar? Cider or something else?

    Champagne would be best. Maybe a white wine, or a white balsamic. Cider would work. I’d stay away from the red balsamics because the color would stain the melon. We’d love to hear a review after you make and taste it.
