Spicy Melon Salad

Sometimes you just want something different.
Not the same old green salad, not a fruit salad... 
Something to tantalize your taste buds.
Do you like Thai food?

Now maybe putting sriracha and fish sauce is not your idea of a great idea, but if you like Thai food, I'd say give this one a try.
It got so many great qualities; Fresh, Cool, Crunchy, Sweet and Spicy

I love the crunch of the peanuts, the zip of the cilantro and the sweet tangy spice of the dressing on the cool, sweet melon.  

For the record, you can't even taste the fish sauce.  If you wanted you could substitute soy sauce instead.  However, soy sauce is technically fish sauce too... just saying.

Serves 2-4

1/2 cantaloupe, peeled and sliced
1/2 honeydew melon, peeled and sliced

1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 Tbsp fish sauce
1 teaspoon Sriracha 
Zest and juice of 1 lime
2 Tbsp chopped peanuts
1 Tbsp fresh Cilantro, chopped for garnish
1 Tbsp fresh Mint, chopped for garnish (optional)

Remove rind and slice thinly (about 1/4 inch) the melons.  Arrange on a plate.
Whisk the sugar, veg oil, fish sauce, sriracha and lime together.  Drizzle over the cantaloupe and honeydew melon. Top with chopped peanuts, cilantro and mint.
