Simply wonderful. I used Grand Marnier, so my "dressing" was oh-so-mellow. I would have added some whole strawberries to garnish, but the red grapes also added quite a bit of red accent, so extra strawberries were unnecessary. I vote for the orange-flavored liqueur! Thanks for posting this recipe, Dreamer! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag.

I like the idea of the melon bowls, but didn't use them this time around! Also omitted the liqueur but did include a rounded teaspoon EACh of lemon, lime & orange! And, since I don't always like picking & choosing, I used a 1/2 cup EACH of strawberries, raspberries AND blueberries, as well as 3/4 cup of red grapes AND 1/2 cup of some very small, very tasty green grapes that were bought at a roadside stand here in the desert! This is REALLY AN OUTSTANDING SALAD, & a recipe that's worth keeping around! [Tagged, made & reviewed for a teammate in our vegan group in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap]

Wonderful fruit salad and so pretty. The lime flavor gave this a little zing which I appreciated. It was very easy to make the little cantalope basket. I subbed watermelon for the honeydew, which I just don't care for. I also used fresh blueberries and the red seedless grapes.

We prepared this last night to enjoy for breakfast this morning. We reduced to two servings and used serving bowls. We didn't add honeydew melon as we had none on hand. We do feel the wonderous flavor from the Grand Marnier is essential. It really makes this fruit salad unique. We also used the zest of both the lemon and lime for color. This is a very nice fruit salad. Thanks for posting.
