  • “This is a marvelous melon salad. Simple tastes and easy to prepare. It has a nice balance of lime, mint and sugar. I used cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew with the lime and mint. I substituted agave syrup instead of sugar. Awesome!”

  • “This fruit salad was fabulous! I absolutely loved the combo of the sweet melon with the tangy lime juice and mint. All the casaba melons I could find were overripe, so I substituted paradise melon for that, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Served it with fajitas and a corn and bean salad. I can’t wait to make it again!”

  • “Delicious and accompanied a Costa Rican-themed meal very well! Fresh pineapple mint from the garden. I did sub other fruit for the melon though: strawberries, oranges and grapes. Thanks for posting!”

  • “Refreshing. I used raw, local, organic honey in place of the white sugar to be healthier but if I were to serve this to company I would use the sugar. I used nice seedless red watermelon, the cantaloupe, and honeydew for the melons, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for ALL YOU CAN COOK BUFFET – SPECIAL EVENT!”
