Ingredients in Mexican Fruit Salad
For this recipe, I used sweet and tangy summer fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, pineapple, mango and then topped with chili lime seasoning, or tajin. Tajin adds that extra zing with notes of citrus, salt, and a hint of chili that really compliments the sweetness of the fruits you won’t want to stop eating!
What is Tajin?
Tajin is a popular Mexican chili lime seasoning made with salt, dehydrated lime juice, and chili powder. Its spice level is very mild, so you can still enjoy it even if you don’t like spicy food! It can be used in many different ways like to season tortilla chips or sprinkled on Micheladas or margaritas, but my favorite way to use it is with sweet and juicy summer fruits.
