food love: cantaloupe salsa + salsa fresca

i think it was in michoacan, mexico where i was first given cantaloupe salsa... my friends and i all met in the hilly middle-of-nowhere town of patzcuaro one summer and someone actually made it for me. i remember it was so simple and unlikely but tastes so good!

cantaloupe salsa:
half a cantaloupe, diced
a handful of cilantro, chopped
juice from 1 lime
half a small red onion, chopped
salt + pepper to taste

mix together and enjoy! *in this version i actually added a whole mango, so mango is nice variation.

i also made salsa fresca here, which goes like this:
2 tomatoes, diced
half a lemon, juiced
half a small onion, chopped
a handful of cilantro, chopped
salt + pepper to taste

these are super easy to make and so good in nice weather.
