Does your family love watermelon? Then they’re going to love this flavor-packed take on the classic summer treat. It’s watermelon dusted with Chili Lime Salt, and it’s DELICIOUS.



Although not a new idea, it’s an amazing one, and if you haven’t tried it yet, now’s the time to give it a go!



The heat, zest, and sweetness of the fruit makes for an amazing combination! It works well as a side dish, dessert, or snack, and is so refreshing and fun.




Go for a chili powder that has a bit of extra sweetness, and less heat. If you can only find Aleppo or Cayenne pepper, just add smaller amounts, to taste.


Best Way To Serve Watermelon:


Sure, you can give everyone a big moon-shaped wedge, but cutting them into smaller wedges, and inserting a popsicle stick is not only more fun and less messy, it’s also less wasteful. No more watermelon thrown into the trash!


Now for the Chili Lime Salt recipe!




Watermelon with Chili Lime Salt




1 tablespoon kosher salt or other coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon ground chili pepper, to taste
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 large watermelon, cut into small wedges




In a small bowl combine the salt, chili pepper, and lime zest with a fork. Set aside.


Place your watermelon wedges on a large platter. Drizzle with lime juice and dust with salt mixture.


Serve right away.
