When I saw this recipe from Smitten Kitchen, I realized I hadn’t purchased a cantaloupe all summer, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I added cucumber based on her reader suggestions, and kept the heat to a minimum with just a dash of cayenne pepper. This was definitely a refreshing salsa on a hot day, with a nice balance of sweet, sour, and spicy. I meant to add fresh basil leaves, which I think would make a nice addition next time.

1/2 large cantaloupe, diced
1/2 medium cucumber, diced
1/4 c. diced scallions
Juice of 1 lime
Dash of cayenne pepper
Dash of salt

Place cantaloupe, cucumber, and scallions in a bowl. Add lime juice, cayenne, and salt and gently toss.
