Salads, especially summer fruit salads don't have to be complicated to taste good. I added strawberries, cantaloupe and 'juan canary' melon for persian. Used up my last peach this morning unfortunately. Next time for sure! Lovely! Reviewed for ZWT Family Picks.

I changed the fruit around but this was delicious!! I used fresh honeydew melon and fresh nectarines which are technically peaches anyway. I used a little less Iranian rose water. I used freshly squeezed lemon juice and did not add the ice but left the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours to chill which gave it a lovely fragrant liquid. The sea salt I used was very nice in this. I would definitely try this again with melon and other kinds of fruit such as berries inshallah. Made for ZWT6, NA*ME regions, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood!

Lovely - nothing like fresh fruit, simply prepared - to round out a meal. Used canned peaches as fresh aren't in season yet. Thank you for posting.

I did use the Persian melon & the peaches in the first go-round with this great keeper of a recipe, & had a wonderfully refreshing fruit salad! Now I look forward to combining other fruits using your recipe, during the warm summer months ahead! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

I saw Chocolatl post this in a thread at Kitten's site and knew I had to make it the next day. OMG ,what a refreshing and delightful salad or dessert or whatever you choose to call it! I had fortunately been to the store the day before so I had both melons and nectarines, plus some wee champagne grapes for decorations/eating. Since I read the reviews and everyone felt guilt-free in adapting this recipe, so did I! I switched the sugar for an equal amount of Tupelo Honey and switched out the lemon for a lime. The combination of the lime/honey/rosewater was like something the Greek Gods would have served at Mount Olympus!!! We had a very thick and heavy stew for lunch; this dessert was the perfect compliment to a meal that's on the heavy/spicy side. Thanks, Choco, for recommending this recipe! It's a keeper, for sure!
