We really loved this one. Used cantaloupe only and omitted the mint as we had none and aren't all over mint as a flavoring. It was terrific. The salsa takes simple grilled chicken into the stratosphere for foodiness. Served this with organic brown basmati rice with green onions and toasted almonds. We made extra salsa to use as the side.

The spicy & sweet salsa was fantastic! We'll pair the leftover chicken and salsa with jack cheese to make delish quesadillas tomorrow!

Substituted watermelon for the honeydew, but kept everything else the same. It was wonderful. Great, light, refreshing summer meal. I served it with a CL salad that had goat cheese rolled in pistachio nuts with grapes and Herbed Vinigriette. Everyone raved about the meal.

Yummy! A perfect summer dish! I didn't have any agave nectar, so I used a bit of honey instead. I served this with plain white rice and a Caesar salad.

Awesome. Very simple and tasty. I substituted watermelon for the honeydew. Made it with Cooking Light's Cilantro Chicken. Must try.

I love fruit salsa so I made this the first chance I got. My BBQ guests loved it. I used only cantaloupe and also used persian cucumbers, left out the red onion, put lots of jalepeno. Sweet, spicy, minty. Loved it. Perfect summer food. Served this with the Farmer's Market Potato salad from this issue. Worked well together.

Awesome dish for summer - really light and nice. I skipped the agave. $5 seemed a lot to spend for 1 teaspoon of something I probably wouldn't need again. Lots of chopping, though. Have two people to make this one or you'll be in the kitchen all day. Well worth the effort!

I enjoyed this recipe a lot. The only changes I made were to use a combination of cantaloupe and watermelon, and use less jalapeno.

This was excellent! Everyone loved the salsa. I didn't have the inclination to fire up the grill, so I pounded the chicken thin and dipped it in a mix of flour, salt, pepper, and galangal. The last of those is a flowery/intense Thai spice which really complemented the other flavors. I served it with a bulgur pilaf with onions, carrots, and toasted almonds. My 9-year-old son asked if it could become a regular dish at our house.

Delicious recipe! Our go-to summer recipe when the melons are in peak season. A family favorite!

Absolutely one of my favorite ways to serve grilled chicken. A bit of chicken combined with the salsa is heavenly. I usually make this 2 or 3 times during grilling season.

Really delicious and refreshing. I served it with/on a salad. Will definitely make this again. It would be good with grilled fish too.
