Delicious Melon Salad with Chile and Lime Recipe

A Mexican-style melon salad that is bright, cool, and juicy. It's the perfect side dish for summer.

– 4 cups seedless watermelon, cut in small dice – 2 cups cantaloupe, cut in small dice – 2 cups honeydew melon, cut in small dice – 2 cups Tuscan melon, cut in small dice – 1/3 cup red onion, minced – 1 jalapeño, finely minced, optional – the juice of a large lime, or more to taste – 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped* – 1/2 tsp chipotle chile powder



Put everything in a big bowl and mix it all together. Check the taste to see if you want to add more pepper powder or lime juice.

Step 1

Step 2

To serve, the salad can be put in the fridge until you're ready to eat it. I think putting the salad in the fridge for about an hour will make it taste better. 

Step 3

Since juices tend to gather at the bottom of the bowl, I give it a gentle toss before each serve.

Step 4

Cover and put away any extra melon salad in the fridge. It tastes best when eaten the same day it's made.
