Boy did I get some strange looks when I served this!! But when I asked everyone - so what do you think, 5 stars? The immediate answers were "Oh Yeah", "At Least", and "Definitely". Now for DH, he didn't try it because the kids ate the grapes and I had to substitute cucumber, but his parting comment after tasting one piece of watermelon was - I'd like to taste that when you make it again with the grapes. Needless to say, no leftovers, so I don't know if it improves with sitting or not. Maybe I'll find out next time since I'll be making a lot more. Thanks Sherrybeth!!

This salad is terrific! I made my own coleslaw dressing using lowfat mayo, red wine vinegar, and splenda. Light and refreshing, great variation of textures with the juicy watermelon and crunchy celery. Loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe!
