Cucumber Cantaloupe Salsa

Living with oral allergy syndrome can stink. I don’t get to eat a lot of the fresh fruits and veggies that I love and the ones I can eat fresh aren’t always my favorite. In fact, even though I loved cantaloupe as a kid, I can hardly stand it now. So while it’s in season and on sale I’m trying to find new ways to eat it. My daughter and I already tried cantaloupe blueberry smoothies, which were great. Tonight we tried this salsa with OJ marinated pork chops for dinner. I thought it was awesome and got good reviews from the family. Husband thought it was missing something when it wasn’t eaten with the meat. I thought it was definitely worth sharing! Fresh, healthy and not cantaloupe-y. We also didn’t find it to be very spicy with 1 1/2 jalapeños. Serve with pork or fish.

1/2 cantaloupe
