Cucumber Melon Salsa

I love making atypical salsas, especially sweet & savory ones.  I have made a regular tomato-based salsa, but for tonight's meal of Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas, I decided to go with something different.  This meal really goes great with a sweeter/fruitier salsa, and I love the combination.  It is super easy to make- all you need is some time to dice up some fruit & veggies!  Here is what you do:

Cucumber Melon Salsa
  • 1/2 c cantaloupe, finely diced
  • 1/2 c cucumber, peeled and finely diced
  • 1/4 c red onion, finely diced
  • handful cilantro, chopped
  • salt & pepper
  • juice of 1/4 lime
Combine all the ingredients, give it a stir, and you are ready to serve!  Make it ahead and keep it in the fridge to give the flavors more time to meld if you wish, or eat it right away.  

Eat this with tortilla chips, or to top any meal that you want!
