We are in the middle of a heat wave. That was hot before that’s hard now. Here is a dish based on refreshing ingredients. I already told you the konnyaku noodles were ultra refreshing and another benefit is their fiber greatly helps digestion.
Melon (Provence style). Itokonnyaku (aka shirataki, konnyaku noodles). Hot green chili peppers.
Rinse longly the noodles. Add bits of chili pepper and raw ginger. Put in the fridge to get it very cold.
Carve pearls of melon.
Lay on the noddles. Add the juice that escaped.
Serve very chilled. At the last minute, decorate with ribbons of basil and balsamico reduction.
The leaves are called “salad celery”, they have a very mild celery taste, aftertaste… well, they bring mostly color and fibers. The new onions have been salted, let overnight, rinsed. And the pink cubes are watermelon. Lots of crunchiness.
