Melon Salad

* 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
* 1 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
* 1/4 teaspoon sugar
* 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
* Kosher salt
* Freshly ground pepper
* 1/2 honeydew melon, seeded and peeled (I used cantaloupe)
* Juice of 1 lime
* 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh mint or cilantro (I used mint)
* 1/4 cup roughly chopped salted roasted cashews or peanuts (I used peanuts)


Preheat a grill to medium high. Soak the onion in a bowl of cold water. Whisk the ginger, sugar, olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl until the sugar is dissolved.

Thinly slice the melon, then cut into 2-inch pieces. Drain the onion and toss with the melon, 1 tablespoon of the ginger oil, the lime juice, mint, and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Sprinkle with the cashews.
