  • Summary

    We think of watermelon as the stuff of fruit salads, but it's also great in savory ones. In this Vietnamese- and Thai-inspired recipe, melon and cucumber are the cool contrast to sliced chile and grilled pork (chicken works, too).

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound watermelon (about 1 small), peeled and cut into small wedges (3 cups)
    • 1/2 large cucumber halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise into half-moons
    • 1 jalapeno chile, halved lengthwise and very thinly sliced on the bias (seeded if desired)
    • 1/2 cup torn or small basil leaves
    • 2 teaspoons nam pla (Asian fish sauce)
    • 3/4 teaspoon whole coriander seeds, toasted and ground
    • Juice of 1 lime
    • 8 boneless skinless pork cutlets (2 1/2 ounces each), pounded about 1/8 inch thick
    • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • Coarse salt
