The ancho chili powder really makes this version special. If you like, you may add 1/4 cup Tequila to the liquid ingredients (I like!).

I was really glad that the guests at our barbeque filled up on shrimp and rice so that I could eat lots of this salad after they left. The seasoning is extraordinary and really brings out the tastes of the fruits while adding something unexpected. I used watermelon, strawberries and cantaloupe. Of course, I used the tequila (more is better if you are catering to an adult crowd). This is my new favorite fruit salad and I can't wait for another excuse to make it.
- 4 cups strawberries, hulled and halved (about 1 1/4 pounds)
