Melon Salsa

Makes about 3-1/2 cups

The contrast of the cool melon and spicy chile is the appeal of this salsa. Of course, season will dictate when you have the best melons available. This salsa is excellent with grilled swordfish or with the Three-Cheese Chiles Rellenos (see the book).

 

1/2 small honeydew melon,
   cut into small chunks (about 1-1/2 cups)
1/2 small cantaloupe,
   cut into small chunks (about 1-1/2 cups)
1 jalapeño or serrano chile, finely chopped
1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

 

Combine all the ingredients, mix thoroughly, and set aside in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours for the flavors to combine. Use within 24 hours.
