This is one of my favorite vegetarian starters I have created:
Chili flakes – spring onion – honey melon – cucumber – sambal or chili paste – water salt cracker
The Muse (idea giving person) behind this creation is my former chilean girlfriend, that didn’t like cucumber because she found it irritating that the consistency is so similar to melon, but the taste is not sweet. I love this starter meanly because of that reason. Sweet and sour meet with chili and lemon – the secret ingredient plus a little honey and that kicks this starter to the limits of taste control and palate pleasure.
I call it: Cantalupo à lo chileno, Chili-Honig-Melone-Gurken-Zauber or cantaloupe chili styl
