Ingredients

Thai Salad Dressing

  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce (if you do not have just add a little bit of salt to balance the dish)
  • 1-2 chili peppers
    chopped (as desired to you heat liking)

Salad Fixings

  • 2.5 pounds watermelon
    or about 6 slices or 4 cups (horizontally slice watermelon and leave on the rind)
  • 2 cucumber
    small (deseeded, cut into lengthwise quarters -leave the skin on)
  • 1 onion small red onion sliced (or can use green onion chopped if you like)
  • 5-6 radishes sliced thinly
  • cup mint leaves
    chopped
  • cup Thai basil (chopped)- if you cannot find Thai Basil just exchange with regular sweet Italian basil and just as delicious

Instructions

  • Step 1:  Make the Thai Dressing: Mix lime juice, fish sauce and chili peppers together and set aside.
  • Grill Watermelon and cucumber slices on the grill for just about 2-3 minutes on each side just to get a slight grill marks. Remove the rinds and white portion of the watermelon. slice in long lengthwise slices to match the length of the cucumbers. Cut the cucumbers in half to be about the same size as the watermelon slices. (I like my food symmetrical as it makes it easier to eat)
  • Combine the sliced watermelon, cucumbers, radishes and onions into a bowl. Drizzle on the Thai dressing and add mint and Thai basil and toss gently.
  • Serve your Thai Grilled Watermelon Salad at room temperature or cold to your liking.
