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…


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.


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!
