When I was a kid I used to love when my mom would pick me up from school. She used to give my sister and me some money to spend in a snack from the many stands outside and my favourite was the guy with the fresh fruit. This was no boring fruit, but a stand with the most colourful, most appetising mangoes, watermelon, cucumbers, carrots papaya, melon and pineapple; they were all in plastic cups ready to be served with lime juice, a bit of salt and chilli powder. Yes, Mexican kids loooove chilli, especially if you mix it with lime. Last weekend I tried this recipe with some Aussie kids and since the chilli powder wasn’t too overwhelming this was a delicious salad they could not have enough. The salt and chilli bring up the sweetness of the fruits and the lime juice adds some tanginess to the mix, which make it delicious. I invite you to try this simple recipe, get 1 fruit of get them all and enjoy
