Cucumber Melon Salsa

Sometimes, you get a cantaloupe that is just so sweet and juicy, you want to use it as many ways as possible. My current fave is a sweet and savory salsa. Guess what tastes amazing? Salting your melons! Cucumber and cantaloupe become a cooler, more chic version of themselves with a little bit of chile lime sea salt. You can get the Chile Lime Sea Salt I used at the spice shop I own in Duck, NC or just use a combo of sea salt, crushed red pepper, and lime zest. This salsa is amazing on chicken tacos.
