Made this salad to take to a neighborhood cook out & in spite of the heat it was a huge success! Kept in the shade & in a larger bowl of ice, it kept very well! Loved the flavor combo of these fruits, & will make it again, for sure! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
Recieved many compliments on this recipe. I forgot the honeydew and had to sub peaches but it still was wonderful! Will definitely try it again with the melon. Thank you for sharing this great salad!!
