So much so that my parents would buy one weekly because I would eat it all and the family would want more.

I used to frequently enjoy my watermelon with Tajin— which is a Mexican seasoning made from a blend of lime, mild chili peppers, and sea salt. This recipe was inspired from that, but we wanted to make it homemade + add a twist with some mint.Taking fruit to a party this summer?

There’s really no going wrong here, just be sure to adjust the salt and cayenne in small increments haha, we made the mistake of going a little too heavy on those once and it didn’t end well.

Also, quick tip! If you are not able to finish all of your watermelon monitor salad, what we did was chuck it all into a blender or run it through a juicer— it makes for killer smoothies and juices!Make sure you tag us on Instagram @sweetsimplevegan and @consciouschris and hashtag #sweetsimplevegan if you recreate any of our recipes, we love to see your photos!
