Watermelon Salad With Jalapeno and Lime

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Paris D

Don't be afraid of the raw jalapeno - the lime juice tames it and makes it mild.

This was a cool and delicious side dish! I wouldn't change a thing in here but wouldn't bother deseeding the jalapeno because more heat would have been great - but I like heat! Made for my fellow Chef Gone Wild for ZWT8. Thanks Melanie D! :)
