SWEET..... refreshingly yummy. I kicked it up using Recipe #397737. I did use cilantro so the salad is all mine. DH doesn`t like cilantro. But he enjoyed the rest of the melon. Too bad for him. :) Part of our Menu #66619. Thanks

Refreshing. I used sweet onion instead of red, freshly squeezed lime juice, sea salt, cayenne pepper powder in place of the serrano chili, to taste, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, plus the rest of the ingredients. I cut the strawberries smaller than halves because they were pretty big. Made for ZWT7 South & Central America, for my team, Food.Commandos
