I grew up in Oregon living in (and loving) the damp, cold, and rainy Pacific Northwest winters. But, come January or February, relief was in need! You can only take so many gray skies. Insert: winter Mexican beach vacay. It’s a must living in a gray and rainy climate, but also enjoyable pretty much any time!

There isn’t anything better than kicking back with some sand in your feet, sunglasses on, and book by your side looking out on the ocean…. and a fruit cup close by. Usually there are vendors combing the beach that offer these treats and you shouldn’t pass them up! Often they are served with a red hot sauce.

But, if you aren’t fortunate enough to snag one while on the beaches of Mexico, fret not! Below is a short and easy guide to creating salty fruit cups on your own!

Note: these are best enjoyed outside with drink in hand (your other hand, that is).

Makes: 1 cup / Takes: 5 minutes


Cut the following fruit lengthwise into 1 inch cubed matchsticks and arrange in beach-safe cup.

  • Pineapple

  • Mango

  • Watermelon

  • Cantaloupe

Squeeze one lime per cup.

Top with generous pinches of Desert Provisions Hatch Red Chile Salt.

Cook's notes: Feel free to use can use any combo of your favorite citrus in this recipe.

Health plug: Red chiles are extremely high in Vitamin A, which plays a vital role in vision and the formation and maintenance of critical organs like the heart, lungs, and kidneys.
