Chamoy (Sweet – Salt – Lime –Chili)  for Fresh Fruit or Vegetables

What a great way to enhance the flavor of fresh fruit/vegetables. The lime juice brings out the natural sweetness and the sweet-salt adds a refreshing note and brings out all the natural juices of the fruit and or vegetables. In Mexico this spice mix is called Chamoy and its very popular.
