Like Pepper’s famous papaya salad, but with the juicy and refreshing summer fruit instead.
Watermelon is a must-have in the summer—it’s the perfect way to cool down on a hot night. Here’s a Thai twist on the classic watermelon salad, using fish sauce instead of feta for tangy saltiness, and adding jalapeño for extra kick and peanuts for crunch. This is basically Pepper’s famous papaya salad but with watermelon instead! Bonus tip: This recipe calls for a mortar and pestle, but if you don't have one, you can use the side of a knife or a bowl and cocktail muddler to smash.
