    This is a suprising combination of refergerator staples. I tried this recipe because I had the ingredients and as an after thought, I snipped some mint from the garden, chopped it and added it to the top of the salad. I was very pleased.  -  19 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    how could this NOT be good. I work outside in the summer and this is perfectly satisfying and refreshing. Does not sit heavy in the stomach. Great. Will be making this all summer  -  29 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is so easy and the touch of sea salt does wonderful things for the melon. I also love the addition of the cukes--my favorite veggies!!  -  11 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
