Milk Street Recipe

Chili-Rubbed Pork with Cucumber-Melon Salad

35 minutes

This colorful dish is a study in contrasting flavors and temperatures. Sweet mingles with savory and warm mixes with cool. If you like, for a salty, tangy accent, offer crumbled queso fresco at the table for sprinkling. You’ll need a 10-inch oven-safe skillet for cooking the pork. Then comes the best part—biting into the unique mix of flavors and textures—sweet meets salt meets (gentle) spice meets cool, fleshy fruit.

What should be cacophony turns into a harmonious whole. 

Pardon the interruption
