Watermelon with Jalapeño-Lime Vinaigrette — Food Between Friends

Serves 6-8

For those fans of watermelon sprinkled with flaky sea salt, this upgraded version of our favorite summer treat is for you! The salty cheese enhances the sweetness of watermelon, while the lime juice and cilantro brighten it and the jalapeño and paprika add complexity and heat. We also love this vinaigrette tossed with salads and even served with grilled chicken.


1 small watermelon, sliced into wedges
3 oz cotija cheese
Fresh cilantro leaves
Jalapeño-Lime Vinaigrette

For the Jalapeño-Lime Vinaigrette:
¼ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon minced jalapeño, plus more for garnishing
Fine sea salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon sweet, smoked paprika
½ teaspoon chili powder
