Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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"
"This was very refreshing and delicious. I used prefect red watermelon, honeydew but no cantaloupe as I didn't have any on hand I just added additional amounts of the other two melons. I used vidalia onion, creamed honey, canola oil to be soy free, plus the rest of the ingredients. Serve right away for best texture and taste. I found if it sat too long it produced too much liquid and sitting a very long time the mint flavour became a bit too strong. I would make this again!! Made for ZWT7 South & Central America, for my team Food.Commandos"
"All round great little salad !! Made for ZWT 7."
"This was a very refreshing salad, I probably added a little more of the honeydew and cantaloupe than called for. The lime and honey dressing is what makes the salad. Made for ZWT5"
"Really excellent. I don't know how this recipe has escaped being reviewed for so long. The dressing is wonderful on the melon/onion and altogether made a memorable side for our Mexican dinner."
