I've made it several times and it is a great summer dish. Very refreshing. I add a little more ammeretto, but otherwise the same. I have also halved the recipe for just a small family dinner and still have plenty for left overs.

Simply wonderful. Fresh, sweet tart dressing. Lovely on the melons. I did make melon balls, but, except for company meals, will go with the easier cubed melon pieces in the future. I recommend this HIGHLY. A perfect summer salad. But it was great in the snow in Seattle in April (for gawd's sake!!! :-) )too.
