    ok, I'm resurrecting this topic, based on a related riff here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/5576...

    which also gives a great recipe for Asian pork belly and watermelon salad.

    Perhaps that's what the list above is missing, Alkapal - red meat.

    Given the clear Asian theme, I think some duck, with lots of cripy skin, wouldn't go amiss, either.

      okay, just one more, 'cause the combo sounded really good:
      Grilled Watermelon & Avocado Salad
      mixed greens / kaiware sprouts / lemon wasabi dressing

      from "zengo" in denver (really yummy menu ideas, too, from ceviches to sushi to meat and vegetarian dishes, noodles, dumplings, wheat free entrees, plus superb flavor combinations in every category): http://www.usmenuguide.com/zengodenver.html
