Wild 'bout Fruit Salad

25 mins (prep 25)
18 ingredients
1-2 servings
Sam Talbot's offering on Top Chef. Everyone was raving about it, so I just had to try it! This makes two very satisfying servings, but there is enough of the lemon/oil to toss more spinach in and plenty chimichurri sauce for at least 2-4 more servings. I diced the fruit up for the first batch, but for the second I just did a rough chop. It might not be as refined looking, but it was wonderful. One thing I did that I felt added to the flavor profile was a slight sprinkling of fine sea salt to finish it off. Wonderful salad. I plan on serving it many times next summer when the melons are at their peak. I am a light weight when it comes to spicy food and I thought the amount of red chili flakes was just right.
