We think of watermelon as the stuff of fruit salads, but it's also great in savory ones. In this Vietnamese- and Thai-inspired recipe, melon and cucumber are the cool contrast to sliced chile and grilled pork (chicken works, too).
Chicken parts are quick to cook and simple to serve -- no carving required. Even better, they take on big flavor when marinated. That means you can streamline your day by prepping them in the morning, and when you're ready to start dinner, most of the work is done.
Egg rolls, skewers, dumplings and more; these Asian-inspired foods make great finger foods. A bit of spice and flavors such as soy sauce, red curry, and lemongrass give these dishes international intrigue.
