Light, fresh and delightful. This side salad is wonderful over fresh fish or grilled chicken.

It was just OK. Somehow the flavors just didn't meld somehow to my taste. Won't make again. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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 Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 27 July 2013 Once again I am behind on making the recipe group pick - but so glad I tried this one. Loved the combination of the fruits veggies and spiciness of the jalapeños. I served this this flour tortilla chips and guacamole tortilla chips. It was great with both but I can see where this would lend excellent flavor for chicken pork or fish dishes. With fresh cantaloupe still in season I will be making this recipe again. Thank you Theresa787 for sharing your recipe. Read More
