This recipe, from the City Restaurant and Border Grill
in Los Angeles, presents melons in a sweet and savory
context. In order to have a contrast of colors and
flavors, use portions of several melons. The recipe
calls for approximately 2 pounds of prepared melon
about half a pound per person. The specialty items may
be found in Thai grocery stores.

Cut the melons into small dice or thin ribbons.
Arrange on a platter.

Place the chiles, lime juice, fish sauce, palm sugar,
pea- nuts, dried shrimp, crushed lime leaves and
garlic puree in a blender; blend until thoroughly
mixed. Pour over the salad and garnish with cilantro
