Cantaloupe Salsa

Cantaloupe Salsa

For topping chicken, fish and steak… or as my husband says, ” all by itself”, as he was eating it by the spoonfuls…

Seriously, this recipe made a lot of salsa and quite frankly I think it might even be good on tortilla chips? Try it and let me know…

Ingredients: 

1/2- cantaloupe, peeled and seeded, cut into small pieces

3/4 Cup- red bell pepper, diced small

1/4 Cup- fresh cilantro, chopped (if you use dried like I did, just a few sprinkles back and forth and mix, and sprinkle again… or to your taste…)

3- green onions, chopped

Juice of one lime (or 1/4 Cup of the bottled kind)

Pinch of salt

Pinch of hot pepper flakes (or more if you like it hot)

And just a “titch” of sugar… (yes, “titch” is well… I guess a W.Va word, I don’t know…) it means a smidgen… er, very little- just to take the sour bite out of the intense lime flavor.

Directions:

Dice your cantaloupe, red bell peppers and green onions into small pieces

Add in your lime juice

Add in your dried ingredients and stir.

Note: I made mine a few hours before dinner and kept it in the frig covered in plastic wrap. This is what it looks like on chicken: So pretty and tasty! Enjoy!

Meal idea (as shown): BBQ Chicken with Cantaloupe Salsa, grilled asparagus and sweet potato wedges with ooey, gooey, chipotle seasonings, cinnamon and honey. Oh my!
