Inspired by the chile-and salt-sprinkled pineapple found in the fresh fruit stalls of Mexico, this amazing melon salad is delightfully refreshing. Salt and tangy lime juice and spicy chili powder enhance the sweetness of fresh summer melon while fresh mint adds a cool finish.
1 medium ripe cantaloupe or honeydew melon, peeled, seeded and cut into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons chopped mint
Juice of 1 lime
1 to 3 teaspoons chili powder, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a serving bowl and toss well. Taste and adjust seasoning with chili powder then serve.
