Chile Lime Melon Salad

Ingredients

  • 3 cups seedless watermelon, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 cups cantaloupe, cut into bite-size pieces
  • Zest from 1 lime
  • Juice from 2 limes (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon seeded and finely diced jalapeño pepper, or to taste
  • Kosher or coarse sea salt to taste – Explore The Spice House | Shop Now

Directions

Place the melons in a large bowl and set aside. Combine the rest of the ingredients, except for the salt, in a smaller bowl and whisk well. Pour over the melons and toss evenly to coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Just before serving, toss the salad again and add the salt. If you add the salt too early, it will draw more liquid out of the melons. You can serve this salad in individual bowls to catch some of the extra juice or serve it with a slotted spoon.
