You know watermelon's great with other fruits, but try it with veggies, too. This garden-fresh salad is incredibly refreshing and only a little bit sweet. It's a sure bet for any sunny-day get-together. —Roblynn Hunnisett, Guelph, Ontario

"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,"

"I loved the simplicity and taste of this salad. My husband was not a fan of the balsamic vinegar taste with the watermelon. I guess will make this just fit myself when using up leftover watermelon or cucumbers."
