Spicy watermelon salad

An excellent savory twist for watermelon in summertime.


  • Watermelon
  • Chili powder
  • 1 lime
  • Salt
  • Cilantro
  • Cotija cheese

An alternative combination of mint and feta works well too.


  • Cut a watermelon into big cubes
  • Mix cubes with chili powder, lime juice, lime zest, and salt
  • Let sit for 15 minutes, then strain
  • Add herbs and cheese
