Easy and yummy! I served this with garlic lime chicken, rice, and margaritas and had a tasty date night.
We thought this was Fabulous! Served it over a spicy-grilled white fish and it was the perfect accompaniment. Word to the wise - this makes A LOT! So unless you're feeding a crowd, consider halving the recipe.
I made this recipe and I loved it. I love all kinds of salsa with many different ingredients. This is good with chicken or pork, I also put some on top of my salads for a refreshing change. I like hot spicy food so I used more hot peppers. I will definitely make again!
Thank you everyone for trying this. I made this again yesterday and substituted a diced red bell pepper for the Roma tomato. It added a wonderful crispness and sweetness to the salad. Enjoy
Made for Recipe Group. I used parsley instead of cilantro, as I am not a fan of cilantro. A little too much melon, but nice flavors overall. Paired well with the grilled Unbelievable Chicken! Thanks for the recipe.
I halved this recipe in an attempt to salvage what was not a very flavorful melon. Great results!! Since my cantaloupe was not very sweet, I added a small squirt of agave syrup. Also, a sprinkling of cayenne for more punch. We ate the salsa with tortilla chips and served it on homemade chicken/spinach burgers.
I made this to put over some pork chops and it was fabulous!! We had people over for dinner and all of them asked for the recipe. I wouldn't change a thing!!
Absolutely amazing! I could eat it all day. So refreshing.
