Cantaloupe Basil Salsa

¼ cup finely chopped sweet onion (such as Vidalia)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
1 (2-inch long) fresh hot red chile or green chile such as serrano or Thai,
minced (including some seeds)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
¼ teaspoon salt

Toss together all ingredients in a bowl and let stand, covered and chilled, 10 minutes.
