Caribbean Citrus Chile Rub + Banana
What's not festive about a blend of lime, lemon, and orange? The chiles in this zesty Caribbean Blend are mild, but heat lovers will still appreciate a bit of zip. We love pairing this island-inspired blend with fresh banana. Perfect for a quick snack by the pool.
Hawaiian Smoked Sea Salt + Watermelon
Wood from the kiawe tree, similar to mesquite, infuses our Hawaiian Smoked Sea Salt with soft, sweet, smoky notes. The delicate balance of this interesting salt creates a flavor profile that pairs perfectly with watermelon, fresh or grilled. Sprinkle this over fresh watermelon and a squeeze of lime for the perfect lunch side dish. Take to to the next level by grilling the watermelon briefly for a quick sear to further enhance the smokiness.

Our Mexican Chile Lime Seasoning is a versatile, bright blend of guajillo chiles, lime, and salt that pairs just as well with your fruit salad as it does a fun cocktail. What more could you ask for!
