Gai Yang With Bird’s-Eye Chile Dipping Sauce

Watermelon, cucumbers, basil, mint, and fish sauce come together in this healthy and fairly effortless Thai recipe. If you’re having trouble finding bird’s-eye chiles, look for something with a comparable heat level, like habaneros. Anything less spicy will render the sauce very sweet, so an alternate move would be removing the small amount of sugar from the sauce completely and to use a less spicy chile variety.
