2 T olive oil
9 C diced watermelon

Remove the zest from 1 lime and cut into thin strips. Cut segments from the lime (like a grapefruit). Squeeze juice from the membranes into bowl. Juice other lime into bowl.

Combine zest, juice, ginger, chile, pepper, salt and oil.
Combine watermelon, radishes, lime segments, mint and cilantro.
Pour dressing over and serve.

From One Spice Two Spice (by Floyd Cardoz). Fully recommend this book…fairly easy with half an eye to Western cooking (he’s originally from Goa so it has a bit of a Portuguese feel as well).
