Spicy watermelon salad

An excellent savory twist for watermelon in summertime.

  • 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
