Delicious Living | Delicious Living

Look for ground chile pepper powder in the spice or Hispanic-foods section of your market. For sweet, mild flavor, use ground ancho chiles; for more heat, try caribe or smoky chipotle. Serving tips: Keep this well chilled while transporting. For best flavor and presentation, take ground chile in a separate container and sprinkle over salad just before serving.

  1. Cut cucumber in half lengthwise and discard seeds. Cut cucumber into 1/4-inch slices; then mix in a bowl with cantaloupe, mint, lemon juice, and olive oil. Add a few pinches of salt to taste. Chill thoroughly. Sprinkle with chile powder just before serving.
