I chose this recipe as the last one for the Summer Salad series because it’s the easiest and most versatile in my opinion, and I know for me at this point in the summer when everyone’s a bit tired and hanging out by the water is all anyone wants to do, easy cooling, and healthy are top priority.
This fruit salad reminds me of Mexican candy and gives you a mouthful of sweet, smokey, spicy and tangy all at once!
Serve it as a side with just about anything, or enjoy it on its own as a satisfying snack.
• 2 cups of diced watermelon
• 2 cups of diced pineapple
• 2 cups of diced mango
• Juice of 1 lime
• 1/8 to 1/4 tsp Chile powder (I prefer ground chipotle chile for a sweet smokey taste, but any ground chile pepper is good as long as it’s just chiles and doesn’t have additives like garlic and salt)
Combine all fruit and sprinkle with the lime juice and chili powder, serve immediately and enjoy! If you want to make ahead and chill, just save the chile powder to sprinkle on top until you are ready to serve it.
