Cantaloupe Salsa With Grilled Chicken

Cantaloupe Salsa

Sweet melon combined with crunchy peppers, zesty lime, spicy jalapeno and fresh mint make up this delicious cantaloupe salsa that pairs perfectly with grilled chicken and salmon. 

Summer screams salsa season, but salsa doesn’t have to mean tomatoes or tomatillos, in fact, a good fruit salsa can make a grilled chicken, shrimp or salmon dinner pop!  I

Note – When creating the recipe, I originally tested it using tomatoes and I did not care for the tomato melon combo, but red bell peppers really pop and add some fantastic crunch to this salsa.  I played around with the fresh herbs as well and absolutely loved the fresh mint in this cantaloupe salsa as it complements the sweetness of the melon.
