"Made this for a pot luck supper at church. Everyone loved it. All said they had never thought of combining cucumber and watermelon but it worked."

"I thought this was okay. It is certainly different. Got mixed response from the guests at the party too. Likely won't make it again."

"This is absolutely delicious!! I will be making this again and again. I did not have fresh mint so I substituted with fresh basil out of my garden. YUMMMM! Thank you!"

"This salad is definitely a keeper. Did not change one thing, and everyone at the family party loved it. A very subtle blending of flavors. As a volunteer Field Editor, I rate this one five starts,"
