Cantaloupe and Cucumber Salad

"A Rachael Ray recipe from her EveryDay Magazine June/July 2008 edition. Light summer salad that features sweet cantaloupe, one of my favorite fruits! To make this a main course, simple add cooked chicken breast strips and chopped avocado on top. Fresh, light and tasty too! PS, the best cantaloupes in the world are grown in Indiana in my opinion. . .Poseyville's are absolutely grand if you can get your hands on them. . .they are kind of bumpy and ugly but they taste the best."

    What a lovely refreshing salad. We loved it. Made as written but omitted the nuts because of my husband's allergy. This will be perfect this summer with bbq. Served this tasty treat with pepperoni pizza and watermelon drink for a memorable meal. Thanks so much for sharing. Made For What's on the Menu? tag game.

    This was a delicious green coloured salad with honeydew instead of cantaloupe and no yogurt to be dairy free!!! I used freshly squeezed lime juice, creamed (whipped) honey, English cucumbers, fresh mint from the garden plus the rest. I would make this again the same way or if doing dairy try with the yogurt.

    I found this a mix of interesting flavors, but it works. I did omit the celery (personal preference) and reduced the honey to 1/2 tbsp. [made for recipe swap #19 Aug '08]

    This was a tasty salad. I used a mixture of honey dew and canteloupe (after Gerry 999's suggestion), and an unpealed English cucumber. I liked the mixture of textures, sweetness and tanginess. I used whole almonds which gave more crunch than sliced would have.
