Cantaloupe With Spicy Bacon-Cashew Crumble

Juicy melon with a salty-sweet crunchy topping makes for a low-effort but universally crowd-pleasing summer appetizer.


Ingredients




6


slices bacon, sliced crosswise ¼" thick

3


large garlic cloves, finely chopped

1


red Thai chile or Fresno chile, finely chopped

½


cup finely chopped unsalted roasted cashews

1


Tbsp. light brown sugar

½


tsp. Diamond Crystal or ¼ tsp. Morton kosher salt, plus more

1


2-lb. cantaloupe, room temperature, cut into 1" cubes



Directions



Step 1




Cook bacon in a dry medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. fat from skillet.






Step 2




Cook garlic and chile in same skillet over medium heat, stirring, until garlic is softened but has not taken on any color, about 1 minute. Add cashews; cook, stirring constantly, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in bacon, brown sugar, and ½ tsp. Diamond Crystal or ¼ tsp. Morton kosher salt. Taste crumble and season with more salt if needed. Crumble should be equal parts salty and sweet.






Step 3




Arrange cantaloupe on a platter and top with warm crumble.
