Delicious Dish – Cantaloupe Salsa

Delicious Dish – Cantaloupe Salsa

(via Smitten Kitchen – Adapted from Gourmet)

I’m a huge fan of mango and pineapple salsas, but they get old really quickly.  So on my journey to Smitten Kitchen today, look what I found!

Makes about 2 cups of salsa

This would be great over grilled fish or chicken, not that ours ever got that far. It is equally good with tortilla chips.

It occured to me after the fact that this would be fun with a mix of honeydew and cantaloupe, for color and a bigger range of flavors.

2 cups diced (1/4 inch) cantaloupe (from a 2 1/4-lb piece)
1/4 cup diced (1/4 inch) sweet onion (such as Vidalia) or red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or cilantro
1 (2-inch-long) fresh hot red or green chile (skip the seeds if you want to dim the heat), minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix everything and eat immediately.
