      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.
