      Wow what a treat. I loved this salad. The dressing combination of honey, lemon, fresh mint and cayenne is out of this world and compliments all the fruit perfectly. Some of the fruit becomes spicy while others remain, cool, tart or sweet. I especially liked the flavor that the cayenne brings to the pear and melons. A tasty treat that I will be enjoying often this summer. Thank you so much for sharing.
