Thai Watermelon Salad or Asian Watermelon Salad Recipe is one of the most amazing salads that I have ever eaten in my life!
The other day we had been to a nice family dinner after ages. We boiled down to a Thai restaurant and first thought of ordering a nice salad to munch on.
When I browsed the menu to check the same, my eyes caught fancy of a dish called Thai Watermelon Salad.
Summer was going on and the thought of feasting on some watermelon was totally irresistible.
So, we wasted no time and ordered this Salad first.
It tasted so good that I kind of promised myself to prepare it at home.
Yesterday, when I found a good piece of watermelon at the supermarket, I bought it and came home to prepare the exact version of the salad that I had relished.
I generously used the crunchiest pieces of watermelon, cucumber, Thai basil, peanuts, red onion, and roasted peanuts for the base.
These ingredients gelled up beautiful flavors, I must tell you! The dressing used for Thai Watermelon Salad definitely contributed more to its yumminess.
We indeed relished a filling, lip-smacking Thai meal.
However, I must say the Salad was outstanding! While fresh, ripe watermelons are available this season, do try making Thai Watermelon Salad Recipe at home.
