Fresh Mint and Cilantro Melon Salad

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"All the fresh greens of the herbs and melon of this easy side dish are refreshing to both the eye and the palate! The melon can be chopped bite-sized to be a salad or side, or smaller to be used as a relish or condiment. This dish is also great for a change of pace on the brunch buffet! This works well also with Crenshaw melon."

This was not very good, and I like all of the ingredients in the salad separately. I made it exactly as specified in the recipe and let it marinade for 8 hours in the fridge but it just tastes ...

I was sceptical about this combintion. I was afraid the herbs would be odd simply chopped (chucnks of cilantro and mint). IT IS AWESOME!!!! I just started a low fat/calorie diet and am trying...

This is a great flavor combo, the Cilantro, Lime and Mint bring out the flavors of the fresh fruit. I didn't feel Honey Dew was enough color so I also added Cantaloupe, Strawberries, Blueberrie...

I doubled the recipe, which made the melon too tall to really sit in the lime juice, which is crucial! No matter how much you toss, it's not the same. I used maybe 5T lime (one big lime), and ...

Sounded funky, but awesome combo, added cantaloupe and strawberries for my big family. we loved it, thanks!!!!

This was excellent, light and easy. Instead of sugar, I used honey and a little bit of jalapeno jelly. It was very tasty.

Very yummy! I added cantaloupe chunks and blueberries. It was very good but the lime, cilantro, and mint go really, really well with the honeydew. I will make this again.

This was wonderfully delicious. It tasted so fresh. To help you out a bit with the measurements, I used 3/4 of the melon to make the 4 cups, 1 lime for the 1 tablespoon of juice, and 1 full ...
