Cantaloupe + mango salad

I never know whether to call this a salad or a salsa, but I've been making this fruity cantaloupe, mango and pear combo for years and it's always a hit. To further confuse matters, the recipe from Food & Wine Magazine calls it a slaw! (click here for the full recipe) It's made with cantaloupe, mango, carrots, and pear (sometimes I add jicama instead of the pear). It takes hours to cut the fruit into perfect little matchsticks, so feel free to just cut them into cubes. The carrot however, should be grated into strips, and preferably with one of those nifty julienne peeler tools. The precut carrots sold in the market are too chunky, I think. The dressing has the most perfect taste balance of salty, sweet, sour, hot and umami, and goes perfectly with grilled seafood.
