    The Wallaces's Note:

    Now that the weather is getting warmer, I find myself looking forward to pasta salads and melon. Why not combine the two? One of my favorite pasta salads from BHG "Fresh and Simple Pasta Pronto". Swiss cheese can be substituted for the fontina.

      Very nice salad for a hot summer day. I used honeydew melon. Had to use mixed greens, as there's no watercress available at our local grocers. I wasn't sure whether to use a creamy based dressing or not. I chose a non creamy variety such as Poppy Seed Dressing. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)
