Mexican Style Fruit Plate with Chili Lime Salt


It seems odd to put chili powder on fruit, but after trying it at a Mexican market, I was hooked on the unique  flavor combination! The chili gives the fruit a spicy kick that kept me coming back for more! They actually sell a chili lime seasoning at the Mexican market, but I figured making my own would be easy too. It’s a fun twist on a traditional fruit plate and perfect for summer parties. Read below for the how-t0 and enjoy!

Mexican Style Fruit Plate with Chili Lime Salt
1 watermelon, sliced into long pieces
1 pineapple sliced into long pieces
1 mango sliced into long pieces
4 limes (2 for the seasoning, 2 for garnish)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (or more if you prefer)

Zest 2 limes in a small bowl. Then add in the chili and salt and mix well.
When assembling the plate, add a layer of fruit, then sprinkle the seasoning over the top, add another layer and more seasoning… repeat.

    Does it only taste good on those fruits? Could you just toss it in a fruit salad style
