1 cup cantaloupe, finely diced (from 1/4 medium melon)
1 cup papaya, finely diced (from 1/2 medium papaya)
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
Chopped cilantro leaves from 4-5 stems
Juice from 1 lime
1/2 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
Pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Salsa should keep in fridge, tightly covered, for a couple of days, though we doubt it will last that long.

Makes 3 cups of salsa.
