Iced Fruit with Lime Salt Recipe

22 June 2023 –

Celebrate the season in style.

Outdoor hosting season is upon us and there is nothing we love more than welcoming our friends and family into our homes to celebrate the sunshine.

Here, Shea takes us into her own backyard to show us how she prepares for and hosts a summer soirée for those dear to her. Dressed in pieces from Sézane, the collection embodies effortless French style.

With a table set with pieces from McGee & Co. and an arrangement by Tinge Floral, the laidback vibe makes the perfect backdrop for casual yet elevated outdoor dining. A bar cart on hand makes for a perfect styling moment and a practical place for serving your favorite seasonal sip. A simple but beautiful side—get the recipe for this oh-so-summery Iced Fruit Platter (don’t forget the lime salt!) below—proves something simple can add a significant impact to your tablescape.


½ cup flakey sea salt
2 limes, zested
¼ teaspoon chili de arbol
2 tablespoons cane sugar
Crushed or pebbled ice
Assorted fruit, for serving (watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries)



In the bowl of a food processor, add the flakey salt, lime zest, and chili de arbol. Pulse to combine, or until salt is coarsely ground and the lime zest is incorporated. Remove from the food processor, then add the cane sugar and stir to combine. Set aside in a small serving or pinch bowl.


To serve, add the crushed or pebbled ice to a large bowl or platter and arrange slices of fruit on top, adding more ice as needed to keep the fruit cold. Serve alongside the salt, sprinkling a generous amount all over the fruit as you go.
