Cantaloupe Salsa

My fabulous, gorgeous, talented, youthful, vibrant, funny, caring and all-around wonderful sister, Cathy, gave RAVE reviews for this recipe, so of course I HAD to have it. I absolutely love fruit salsa variations and I had never had one made with cantaloupe. How deliciously fresh! Thanx Cath!

I made this salsa twice in the last week. My friend Merri Griese taught me how to make it when I was at her house for the weekend in Sea Isle. It's sooo yummy and incredibly easy. I personally could have just eaten it with a spoon right out of the bowl, but I tried (somewhat unsuccessfully) to restrain myself and eat it with tortilla chips instead. Thought you might want to put it on the website one of these days.
Talk to you soon!

1 medium, ripe cantaloupe (or 1/2 of those really large Jersey ones), chopped
1/2 red onion, diced
1 handful cilantro (or to taste), chopped
a few splashes of white wine vinegar (regular white vinegar works too)
a few splashes of canola or vegetable oil
Salt and fresh cracked pepper

Mix together all ingredients. Serve with tortilla chips.

I think this would work really well as a topping for grilled chicken or fish too.
