      What a fantastic surprise! We made this for our dinner party. We omitted the greens. We large-diced everything except for the watermelon, which we used the melon-baller. I kept the fruits and vinaigrette separate until serving. No one would have identified the tequila. Thanks for posting!

      Really good salad that's a little different than the norm! We very much liked the blend of flavors, but felt that it needed something just a little more -- something, to be perfect. When we try this again I think we'll try it with a pinch of Splenda in the dressing and probably a little more lime juice, just to see if that perks up the flavor slightly. We really liked the Tequila, pepper, and salt in it, though we didn't really expect to. To serve it, we put it back in the watermelon shell, which worked very well (though we had tons of salad left over in a regular bowl), and we used a melon baller instead of cutting the melon into batons -- just easier, since we wanted to preserve the watermelon "bowl." All in all, very pretty, very tasty, and we will try it again!
