Vietnamese Watermelon Salad

Vietnamese Watermelon Salad

It's mini watermelon season! These cute little melons from Rise N' Shine Organic Farm are the perfect size–so you won't end up with an extra half of a watermelon in your fridge for weeks. Of course, these perfectly juicy and sweet mini melons are delicious on their own, but if you want to try them in a dish, use them in this Vietnamese Watermelon Salad! It's summery and fresh, and a squeeze of lime with fish sauce really adds a punch of flavor. 

 

YOU'LL NEED:

  • 1 Thai chili
  • 1 lime
  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce
  • mini watermelon
  • 1 small cucumber
  • handful of fresh basil
  • handful of fresh mint
  • handful of fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp peanuts
  • 2 scallions

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Mince Thai chili and juice lime
  • In a small bowl, mix chili, lime juice & fish sauce with 2 Tbsp warm water to make dressing
  • Cut watermelon into 1-inch cubes
  • Cut cucumber into half moons
  • Roughly chop herbs & peanuts and thinly slice scallions
  • Add watermelon, cucumber & dressing to a serving bowl and toss to coat melon & cucumber with dressing, then garnish with herbs, peanuts & scallion and enjoy! This is the perfect side for grilled meats, a great dish for summer potlucks, or perfect for eating by the pool as a snack.
