melon salsa

1 cantaloupe, 1/4" dice
1 avocado, 1/4" dice
1/2 red onion, 1/4" dice
2 Tbsp cilantro, roughly chopped
juice of 2 limes
1 jalapeno, finely diced (You can remove the seeds if you don't want it too spicy.)
salt to taste

What to do with all of this melon? While just snacking on it is great, we decided it was time to put it to another use (it also helped that there were people coming over for dinner!), so we made some salsa! Just cut and mix all of the ingredients together, add the lime juice and give it a nice stir, carefully though as not to crush all the delicious avocado chunks. Serve with some tasty chips and get down! It has a great blend of sweet, salty, spicy, and creamy that really explodes on your taste buds.


  1. Melon salads are really nice. I am so going to have to try adding a jalapeno to the next one that I make.

  2. Never tried cantaloupe salsa, but this looks delicious.

  3. This sounds so good! You said it yourself, sweet, spicy, salty, a crunchy tortilla chip? Awesome!
