|1 pinch||Salt and hot pepper flakes|
Found this recipe attached to the cilantro that came in with a produce order at work. Not a melon man myself, but I figured there'd be some chileheads who are gaga over such. Anywho...
Remove seeds and rind from cantaloupe. Chop cantaloupe into very small dice. Put in bowl. Add diced red pepper, cilantro, scallions, and lime juice. Stir. Add pinch of salt and pepper flakes. Chill. Serve with grilled chicken, fish, or steaks. Makes 4 servings. This is an offical 5 A Day recipe.
Of course, I figure most of us will read "..and hot pepper flakes" as something like "..and 1+ habanero, finely chopped".
