Are you guys ready for this insanely delicious spicy watermelon salad with cilantro and lime!? It’s spicy, sweet, a little bit salty and doused in a super lime-y dressing for the ultimate watermelon salad experience – refreshing and FULL of summer flavor!
To be honest, I almost didn’t share this post. Not because the recipe isn’t good enough, but because.. the pictures. So silly, I know. But I’m a perfectionist (that Virgo + Scorpio astrology combo is a doozy 😁) And the light just wasn’t very good, and I didn’t get “the shot” I wanted, but after I posted a picture of this spicy watermelon salad with cilantro and lime on Instagramand you guys went crazy for it, I thought, well now I HAVE to share it with you. Because it really is delicious. And I can just gonna put that little voice in my head that keeps saying the pictures aren’t good enough to the side and get to the good stuff.
Because this recipe, you guys, is the good stuff. And I kind of feel like I have this unofficial contract with you to share the best of the best with you.
The best paleo bean free chili! This crazy delicious chili is not only bean free (making it paleo and whole30 friendly), it’s also loaded up with a rainbow of veggies – carrots, celery, onions, peppers, tomatoes, fennel and garlic that deliver serious flavor and mega nutrition!
I am pretty sure Seattle is confused about what season it’s supposed to be (SPRING, SEATTLE. IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE SPRING!). Because the trees are blooming and the crocuses and daffodils have sprung up from their earthly depths but it was SNOWING last Friday, you guys. SNOWING. Like big wet flakes falling to the ground for at least two hours 🙄 I know we’re not the only one’s but it just makes me wanna say COME ON ALREADY.
(Very ready for sun over here 🙋🏼)
So while at first I thought I might be a little too far past the cold weather season to share this recipe for the best paleo bean free chili, after this recent flash back to winter-like weather that we’ve been having around here I realized that no, it’s definitely not too late. In fact, this chili recipe is probably needed now more than ever. Because if we’re gonna have to deal with snow at the end of March, we might as well be eating delicious paleo bean free chili while we do it!
Ahhh I’VE MISSED YOU! How did we go from rocking it out with easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese last week to not talking until now?! It’s my bad, I know. Somewhere in between travel and catching the worst head cold I’ve had in forever I just sort of lost some traction.
It happens, sometimes.
The season change struggle is real.
But it’s nothing we can’t fix with some creamy pumpkin turkey chili. Don’t ya think?
I’ve been thinking about making this soup for a very long time. Dreaming of it’s creamy, cozy pumpkin perfection. And last week, mid-cold, post vacation vibes, it was time to bring it to our dinner table.
And it it was literally perfect.
Like a so-totally-november-I-can’t-believe-it’s-already-snowing-luscious gift to ourselves. Because we all know the power of coming home to a delicious bowl of soup when the temperature starts to drop and changing leaves turn into falling flakes. I know Seattle might be a little ahead of other parts of the country on this one but I know you still feel me.
Soup = the best part about cold weather. Especially when it involves pumpkin.
