Sliced watermelon

Sliced watermelon wouldn’t be improved by adding lime and Tajin – that’s a flavor combination that goes best with cubed or chopped watermelon, not slices. Here’s why:

  • Surface area: With cubed or chopped watermelon, there’s more surface area for the Tajin seasoning and lime juice to coat, intensifying the flavor. Slices have less surface area, so the effect wouldn’t be as strong.

  • Messy eating: Cubed watermelon is easier to eat with Tajin and lime because you can pick up the pieces and get all the flavors in one bite. Watermelon slices are messier to eat with this combination because the juice tends to run.

That said, if you’re set on having watermelon slices, you can still add Tajin and lime for a little extra flavor. Here’s how:

  • Cut wedges instead of slices. Wedges have more surface area than slices, so they’ll be better for holding the Tajin and lime juice.

  • Try a Tajin rim. Wet the rim of a plate or bowl with lime juice, then dip it in Tajin seasoning. Arrange the watermelon slices on the rim so the Tajin sticks.

No matter how you prepare it, watermelon with Tajin and lime is a delicious and refreshing summer treat.
