Thai Watermelon Salad!!!

How ironic I make this ‘summer’ salad on probably the coldest day in SF this summer. My feet and nose are failing to defrost as I am typing, even though the heater is blasted. I guess SF has finally hit the cold wave…after a very warm beginning of summer! My days in SF aren’t very numbered anymore so I am hoping to make my last adventures here count before I start school again. I keep chanting in my head- 9 more months…9 more months!!!


Dressing [a few servings]:
1 inch size ginger, grated
1/2 habanero pepper, chopped [or use 1/2 jalapeno, or thai red chili]
1 tbsp soy sauce
6 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
3 limes, juiced
salt and pepper

Salad [1 serving]:
Chopped watermelon
Cilantro, chopped
Mint, chopped
1-2 radishes, sliced
Mozzarella cheese [or feta]

1. Grate ginger into small bowl. Juice limes. Combine with pepper, soy sauce, olive oil,seasme oil, salt and pepper to taste.

2. Chop cilantro and mint. Mix with watermelon.

3. Mix everything together and top with cheese!

It is such a beautiful, exotic blend of flavors!!! My tastebuds are happy 😀
