1 red jalapeno
½ red onion
2 limes, juiced
½ tsp coarse ground sea salt
6 drops Stevia or 1 tsp honey, optional and to taste
Peel and dice the cantaloupe into ½ inch pieces. Cut the
bitter melon in half crosswise and then again lengthwise.
Scoop out the seeds from one quarter of the bitter melon
and finely dice. Toss the melons into a medium bowl,
then seed and mince the jalapeno and add to the bowl.
Peel and finely dice the red onion and add to the bowl,
pour in lime juice, sprinkle with sea salt, and toss together.
Taste, and add Stevia or honey, as desired.
Cover and chill for 20 minutes or more to let the flavors
marry. Store in fridge and enjoy leftovers for up to a week!
