Thai Melon Salad by Ric Orlando

Here is another recipe from my Coxsackie Farmer's Market demo...Melon Love!

Thai Melon Salad
This is super refreshing, clean and surprising.
Bring it to a pot luck BBQ. Its great with smokey grilled fods or its also delish spooned on top of a bowl of steaming hot rice.
Yet another great way to use up any leftover melon. Use whatever melon you have for this.
Makes about a 6 cups.
Note- Allergic to Peanuts, use cashews, sunflowersseeds or nothing.
Want it Vegan?use tamari instead of fish sauce....

 1  cup  watermelon – large dice, seeded
1 cup honeydew, large dice
1 cup Canteloupe, large dice
