Recipe by JOHN F
"This salsa recipe uses an unusual combination of ingredients - melons, onions, jalapenos, etc. It's a wonderful item to serve at parties as a dip with your favorite taco chips. Also great when eaten with fish, or even as a topping to a salad."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
honeydew melon, peeled and finely diced
cantaloupe, peeled and finely diced
minced red onion
jalapeno pepper, minced
chopped fresh cilantro
fresh orange juice
finely chopped almonds
fresh lime juice
The cilantro adds a flavor that sets the recipe apart. The melons, when ripe, and the salsa is served chilled really is delicious. I've also usede green chili peppers with the recipe, as some find the Jalapeno a bit too hot
Every time I serve this, several people ask for the recipe. It is a great side for a summer cookout and is best if you make it ahead and chill over night so all the flavor mingle. Serve it immediately out of the fridge for a great hot and cold effect.
If you do try this, cut the amount of onion by at least 3/4ths.
