READY IN: 40mins

This is referred to as "pico de Gallo" in Jalisco, Mexico. Depending on the availability of the cantaloupes, this is equally good with other fresh fruits such as pink grapefruit, pineapple, blood oranges, watermelon and honeydew melon. Feel free to interchange or mix the different fresh fruits. It makes a delightful palate cleaner. It is delicious served alone, or tossed with an elegant pomegranate dressing, which follows.
