      WOW did I love this! I subbed out Splenda for the sugar and halved the amount of oil (next time I will use even less oil). I didn't have any honeydew, but it was fabulous even without. Thanks so much for sharing this tasty lunch! Made for Veg*n Swap July 2010.

      Woohoo! Everyone had their own favorite melon so there was no arguing! Even the picky eaters loved this! There was no cayenne (at mom's) so I used some white ground pepper. I LOVED the ginger flavor & next time will use fresh ginger. This is a wonderful salad! I think black sesame seeds would look much nicer. ;) Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers.

      Yum!!!! This was delicious with what I had. I used organic cane sugar, white vinegar, sea salt, to taste, powdered ginger, light tasting extra virgin olive oil, no vegetable oil, I had no sesame seeds but they would be good I think, unrefined sesame oil (not toasted, sorry), the melons just not honeydew as I was using what I had on hand, and organic baby spring mix leaves. Taste wise it's a make again. Made for January 2013's Casual Veggie Tag (come join us everyone!)
