Picante sauce is usually a chunkier version of regular salsa. If you can’t make your own version from scratch purchase a Mexican-made brand for a more authentic taste.


  • 1/2 cup Picante Sauce
  • 3 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 cup fresh spinach leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cup cubed cantaloupe
  • 1 large avocado, peeled, pitted and cut into cubes (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup toasted slivered blanched almond


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put the almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 10 minutes or until they turn light brown.
  3. Place the picante sauce, honey, lime juice and oil into a salad bowl and whisk vigorously to blend.
  4. Add the spinach, cantaloupe and avocado to the bowl and gently toss until coated. Sprinkle the salad with the toasted almonds and serve immediately.
