Cantaloupe Basil Salsa Recipe

Juicy cantaloupe makes a refreshing salsa for grilled chicken or fish. For a milder salsa, discard pepper seeds.

• 2 cups diced cantaloupe
• 2 spring onions, diced fine
• 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
• 1 hot green chile, such as serrano or Thai, diced
• 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
• 1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Toss together all ingredients in a bowl and let stand, covered and chilled, until ready to serve.
