Chili Lime Melon
This is a sophisticated twist on a bowl of fruit. It is reminiscent of the flavors found in a South American fruit salad. The cilantro and chili powder add a depth of complexity making this a great side dish or salad for brunch, lunch or dinner. You could use any melon you desire here (honeydew, cantaloupe or watermelon) or a combination of all 3).
To make this #dinnerdoneby9am I chop the fruit and mix with the dressing in the morning plus chop the cilantro, then I refrigerate everything all day long and top the fruit with the cilantro just before serving.
-1 melon (the size of a basketball), cut into bite sized chunks
-zest and juice of 1 lime
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp chili powder
-1-2 Tbsp honey
-1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime zest and juice, salt, chili powder and honey. Toss with the melon. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
