    This is a refreshing change from a plain old fruit salad or fruit tray. This goes wonderfully with Mexican food.

      Wow! This is delicious and refreshing with a little kick!! I loved this and I am gonna serve it at my Cinco de Mayo celebration!! My store was out of cantaloupe and it was still good! I don't think I will ever eat melons without the lime juice and cayenne now, thanks!!!!!!

      OH....MY.....GOODNESS!!! This is the yummiest fruit salad on the planet! I was looking for a side to go with Chipotle Roast for Tacos & Sandwiches, and this fit the bill! I was hesitant to sprinkle three whole melons with cayenne before I knew the outcome, so I opted for some pre-cut melon from the salad bar. I used about a cup each of honeydew and cantaloupe, two cups of watermelon, one very small cucumber, the juice of half a lime, then just lightly sprinkled some cayenne...it was PERFECT!! I didn't use any salt and didn't feel it needed any. I also just diced the melon and mixed it all together and served it in a bowl instead of dipping and placing them separately on a tray. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

      This is wonderful! The cucumber and chili make this a very unique and special fruit salad. If anyone is looking at it with doubts in their minds, it's not hot, the pepper just adds a little edge, and if anything, makes the fruit taste sweeter. I love this fruit salad.
