Preparation

Make the dressing

Combine the sugar, water, ginger, lemongrass and lime zest in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Immediately remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. Add the lemon juice, lime juice, fish sauce and chile; mix well. Let cool to room temperature.

Make the salad

Place all the melon in a large bowl. Add the lemon zest and sliced basil leaves.

Drizzle the dressing over the fruit and let stand for at least 10 minutes, but not longer than 2 hours. This resting time allows the flavors to soak into the melon. Refrigerate if not serving right away. Garnish with the peanuts just before serving.
