fruit on fire
While most people prefer their fresh fruit straight up, some cultures like to turn up the heat. In Thailand, for example, sliced mangoes dipped into a fiery mixture of dried Thai chillies, rock sugar and salt is a popular street snack. And, in Mexico, the love of spiced fruit has spawned a seasoning called Tajín made from dried hot peppers, dehydrated lime juice and salt. Look to these countries for inspiration the next time you want to take a fruit salad from simple to sensational.
