Made for ZWT 7: This recipes is delicious and refreshing! I used fresh mint from my garden and chopped chives instead of the onion as I had no onion on hand. The combination of the herbs with the melon and lime dressing is uniquie and just bursting with summertime flavour. I highly recommend this salad!

I love watermelon and honeydew so this is right up my taste buds. OK I must admit I was nervous with the onions and the pepper ingredients but NOT ANYMORE! I just touched the pepper shaker I admit but the flavors were to die for! I loved the flavor combination and how wonderful to serve this during the summer for picnics instead of jus tthe plain watermelon-melon sald. I tossed on a few mint leaves whole for garnish to pretty up. That lasted less than a second as the guys dug in. I loved it thank you Lori. Made for ZWT2011 The Shady Ladies.

I served this for the first summer BBQ of the year, and it was universally loved. The comments I got were "very fresh tasting" and "refreshing". The combination of lime and mint really made the melon sing. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers
