Expert Tips

  • Not all chili powders are the same; the ingredient listing on the package will tell you what you're getting. Cooking purists prefer pure ground chili peppers. Other chili powders are a blend of seasonings that may include ground chilies, cumin and possibly salt. The degree of heat also varies considerably. Experiment to find which type you prefer.
  • To extract the most juice from a fresh lime, roll it on the counter or microwave it for about 10 seconds before cutting it.
  • Store the prepared salad up to two days in the refrigerator.
  • Serve this sweet-spicy salad with sliced fresh tomatoes and crusty sour-dough rolls.
