SWEET TOOTH SATURDAYS- CALIENTE FRUIT

Hey folks,

Welcome to Sweet Tooth Saturday! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I tried something very unexpected today.  I was out with a girlfriend of mine and she was telling me about getting fruit from this lady who was selling it from the cart outside of the bank.  I've seen these carts before but have never ventured out to give it a try and almost wasn't going to again today.  I especially wasn't going to try it because she said that they top the fruit with chili powder and fresh squeezed lime juice.  Between getting fruit from the cart off the street, chili powder and lime juice, I was a little too baffled by the concept to buy any.  However, once I saw how fresh the fruit appeared to be and the cleanliness of the cart, I stepped outside of my preconceived notions and tried some of my friend's.  OH MY GOSH..was it good!!!  The combination of flavors was delicious.  I turned right back around and got my own! 

So, if you're out and about and see one of these carts, I suggest you give it a try.  This is also something you can definitely do at home.  Just peel and cut the fruit of your choice and squeeze some lime juice and shake some chili powder on top and you'll be good to go!  My mix had pineapple, canteloupe, honeydew, oranges, watermelon and cucumber.  So, when you're looking for sweet with a savory kick..you can definitely find it here!
