Easy Cantaloupe Salsa

Recipe by  

"This is the best salsa ever! The recipe was given to me by a friend and it always goes quickly. It's easy to double, and people always ask for the recipe so have extras on hand! I prefer fresh tomatoes, but the recipe calls for canned. You can also substitute any fruit to adjust it to your tastes. If you have a food processor or mini chopper, this recipe is much quicker and easier. Serve with Tostitos® Scoops!® chips. Enjoy!"

I had some really flavorful cantaloupe which needed to be used up, grilled chicken was on the menu today, so I thought this would be the perfect topper for it. The sweetness of the cantaloupe contrasts perfectly with the heat of the jalapeños and the pungent lemon and lime juices. This would be great on tortilla chips, but it was awesome on grilled chicken breasts today.
