Other combinations of fruits will also taste great in this colorful salsa. Try adding diced melon, such as cantaloupe, honeydew, or musk. Diced mango is delicious also, or, for a truly tropical and exotic salsa, add sliced star fruit (also known as carambola). As with any of my recipes calling for habanero's, you as chef, can substitute with any other capsicum. From "The Habanero Cookbook" by Dave DeWitt and Nancy Gerlach.

Mmmm...yummy! I couldn't find pomegranate this time of year and I left out the cliantro too (personal preference.) Really good! Thanks! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
