This summertime favorite is perfect for all your summer picnics and cookouts! My Watermelon Fruit Salad with Jalapeno and Lime is spicy and sweet, a perfect combination. Tons of Vitamin C and the sweet/spicy combination is amazing. And here’s the best part – mix any leftovers with vodka or gin and you’ve got a great adult bev! You’re welcome.

Note: other fun and tasty additions to this include jicama and cucumber. Try them and let me know what you think!
