Tamarind and raspberry vinegar come together to pique the flavors of this melon salad. The other fun accent in this dish is a gomasio of green Szechuan peppercorns. These two elements are tamed or accent, depending on how you look at it, by the compressed melon.
This dish was part of a family style Chinese influenced menu we cooked this evening. No, not really a Chinese influenced dish, though its element tied into the whole.
