Recipe by Kumquat the Cat's friend
Submitted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Fruiterias, Mexican fruit stands, serve fruit spiked with chile powder, lime and salt to enhance the flavors. Adding additional sugar or sugar substitute is up to you, according to taste or to how ripe the fruit is. Any fruit would work well in this, but I've mentioned the ones listed in the recipe. From a special issue of Saveur, The Best of Tex-Mex. I have not tried this yet.

Really lovely. Cut up all the fruit at home and took along to a beach picnic (in cooler) and dressed there as I was afraid the salt would make the fruit too watery by the time we got round to eating it. The lime and chili is a great foil to the sweet fruit.
- 4 cups assorted fresh peeled fruit (watermelon, pineapples, papaya, mango coconut and cantaloupe)
- 1 lime, halved
- salt, to taste
- chili powder, to taste
