"I have made it twice and it is wonderful. The only change I made was that I used light mayo & light sour cream instead of fat-free. The lemon juice, lemon peel & ginger made it really tasty!"

"Very good! The essence of summer on a plate. I hate ginger, so left that out, and I forgot to include the green onions, but it was still delicious. Make sure you have a ripe, juicy cantaloupe."
