This is one of those salads that the longer it sits, the better it gets. The heat from the chipotle chili powder is tamed by the juicy watermelon, sweet mango and crisp cucumber.


Spicy Chipotle-Lime Vinaigrette:

Watermelon Salad:


  1. For the spicy chipotle-lime vinaigrette: Whisk together the honey, olive oil, vinegar, lime zest and juice and chipotle chile powder in a small bowl. Season with salt to taste.
