Fresh and Easy Cantaloupe Salsa

Fresh and easy cantaloupe salsa

Serves 6 – 8

Janet Jackson was onto something when she sang Opposites Attract.  Because it’s true—when sweet meets spicy, magic happens.  The Fresh and Easy Cantaloupe Salsa is proof in the pudding.  Its cool and refreshing meets a little too hot to tango.  Just like that fling you had with You-Know-Who in summer ’06.


1 Small cantaloupe melon, diced

1 Shallot, minced

1 Fresh jalapeño pepper

¼ C. fresh cilantro, finely chopped

Juice of one lime

Zest of one lime

Sea salt & cracked pepper to taste


Place all ingredients into mixing bowl and stir gently to combine.  Chill well.  Serve with blue corn tortilla chips or topped on your favorite flakey white fish or chicken.

Just you and your honey for a romantic evening?  Quarter the recipe.

FOOD THAT LOVES YOU, TOO:  Packed with flavor and low in calories, cantaloupe is an excellent source of Vitamins A & C.  Cantaloupe helps to protect your vision, fights free radical damage and supports a healthy immune system.
