"Salads, especially summer fruit salads don't have to be complicated to taste good. I added strawberries, cantaloupe and 'juan canary' melon for persian. Used up my last peach this morning unfortunately. Next time for sure! Lovely! Reviewed for ZWT Family Picks."
"I changed the fruit around but this was delicious!! I used fresh honeydew melon and fresh nectarines which are technically peaches anyway. I used a little less Iranian rose water. I used freshly squeezed lemon juice and did not add the ice but left the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours to chill which gave it a lovely fragrant liquid. The sea salt I used was very nice in this. I would definitely try this again with melon and other kinds of fruit such as berries inshallah. Made for ZWT6, NA*ME regions, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood!"
"Lovely - nothing like fresh fruit, simply prepared - to round out a meal. Used canned peaches as fresh aren't in season yet. Thank you for posting."
"I did use the Persian melon & the peaches in the first go-round with this great keeper of a recipe, & had a wonderfully refreshing fruit salad! Now I look forward to combining other fruits using your recipe, during the warm summer months ahead! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]"
"I saw Chocolatl post this in a thread at Kitten's site and knew I had to make it the next day. OMG ,what a refreshing and delightful salad or dessert or whatever you choose to call it! I had fortunately been to the store the day before so I had both melons and nectarines, plus some wee champagne grapes for decorations/eating. Since I read the reviews and everyone felt guilt-free in adapting this recipe, so did I! I switched the sugar for an equal amount of Tupelo Honey and switched out the lemon for a lime. The combination of the lime/honey/rosewater was like something the Greek Gods would have served at Mount Olympus!!! We had a very thick and heavy stew for lunch; this dessert was the perfect compliment to a meal that's on the heavy/spicy side. Thanks, Choco, for recommending this recipe! It's a keeper, for sure!"
