This is really delicious without the red pepper out of preference. I also think it would be wonderful without the greens for which I used baby romaine and it was good that way. I used apple cider vinegar with the mother in it, unrefined sunflower oil, freshly squeezed lime juice, creamed honey, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and the rest. I may make this again without the greens!!

Wonderful. I chose not to put the melon/veggies mixture on salad greens. Loved it on its own in a small bowl. Excellent combination and the dressing is neither too tart nor too sweet. Thanks for posting!

A nice mix of colours, textures and tastes. My kids are getting bored with salad, so great to have something different. I played with the dressing a bit . . . cut back to 1/4 c. oil and a little less honey, but left the rest the same. Used apple cider vinegar. Thanks for sharing this.
