I never knew there was another way to eat cantaloupe! We have always done this, kinda like putting salt on watermelon! Thanks for sharing this with all the people who haven't been clued in yet!

I have also always did the pepper on cantaloupe. Delicious! I sometimes add some chili powder to it to wake it up. YUM!

I'm from the South, and this is how I was raised to eat cantaloupe. I thought everyone ate it this way until I got older. I always used black pepper until I got older and went a little more gourmet with it. I keep a pepper mill in the house with a mixture of peppercorns (black, pink, green, white). If you get the chance, try it with a mix...SO GOOD!!!! This is what my summer is all about: a big bowl of cantaloupe with fresh ground pepper!

This is how I eat my cantaloupe. Most of my coworkers think I am nuts. I love black pepper on it. I think this is a must try for everyone. Once you try it, it will be how you eat it from now on!

Not so weird at all! Both my and my husband's family have always eaten canteloupe this way...I always thought it was a "southern thing".

Not so weird..my family has been eating fruits this 'strange' way for years..if u love this u MUST TRY papaya with pepper and salt on apples. And remember the sweeter the fruit the better the 'odd' combo will taste. ENJOY..and thanks for posting this recipe.
