Here are 5 tips to keep in mind when making our homemade salsa recipe:
- Chop the cantaloupe, tomato, bell pepper, and avocado into 1/2 inch chunks.
- Chop the onion and garlic into a “super fine” mince, to really spread out those flavors.
- Cut and add the avocado last and sprinkle with the lime juice to prevent browning.
- Let the salsa sit for 10 minutes in the refrigerator to let the flavors mingle.
- Fresh salsas are best eaten the same day they’re made.
