Cantaloupe Table Salsa Recipe


Try serving this alongside a couple of other salsas and dips like guacamole


  • ½ medium cantaloupe, cut into chunks
  • 2 canned chipotle chiles en adobo
  • 1 medium white onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sea or kosher salt
  • Juice of 1 lime, preferably Mexican/key lime, if possible
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro


Cut the skin off the cantaloupe, seed, and cut melon into coarse, 1-inch chunks.

Put the melon in a blender or processor with chipotles, onion, garlic, sugar, salt, and lime juice. Pulse to chop. Pulse in cilantro to a coarse grind texture (not a purée!).

Taste for salt. If you want a spicier salsa, hand-mince another chile, add it to the mixture and whirl again. Serve at room temperature.
