Melon Salad with Chiles and Mint
We’ve adapted this recipe from the book CookFight by Kim Severson and Julia Moskin. It really is surprising to feel of pairing melon with savory components like herbs and chile peppers – but if you attempt it, you will see what tends to make it such a fantastic and refreshing notion.
Tends to make
Sharp knife (adult necessary)
Melon baller (if you have one particular)
1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice (about two limes)
1 compact green chile pepper, minced or 1/two tsp crushed red pepper flakes (if you like)
four cups melon balls or cubes (1 big cantaloupe or honeydew or 1/two compact watermelon)
10 fresh mint or basil leaves (chopped)
Wash your hands with soap and water, then collect all your gear and components and place them on a counter.
- Place all the components in the bowl.
- Consume proper away, or cover and refrigerate 1 hour and no far more than three hours.
When you reduce chile peppers, their oils can get on your hands and, later, burn your eyes or nose if you rub them. Put on rubber gloves to reduce the peppers. If you neglect, use dish soap to wash your hands afterward, considering that it can get the oil off greater than common hand soap can.
