Cantaloupe Salsa

An interesting way to make cantaloupe a dinner side dish.

Cantaloupe1 1/2C
Onion1/4 C
Red bell pepper1/4 C
Fresh chilis1 Tbsp
Cilantro1/4 C
Salt1/4 tsp
Lime Juice2 Tbsp
Oil1 Tbsp

Coarsely chop the cantaloupe. Dice the onion and bell pepper Finely chop the fresh chilis and cilantro.

Toss vegetables with salt, lime juice, and oil. Let sit for at least one hour. Served with broiled or grilled chicken.

Simplify it:
Use green bell pepper instead of red.
Or substitute diced tomatoes for bell pepper.
Use canned green chilis instead of fresh.
Use lemon juice instead of lime juice.
