Easy Cantaloupe Salsa

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

This is so good. I had to leave the garlic out because I live with a vampire but it is still delicious. We are having it with shrimp tacos for dinner, but it is good enough to eat by itself wi...

A lot of chopping but well worth it!
