Honeydew Salad with Lime Dressing

Green is my favorite color, and this refreshing salad with grapes, cucumber and kiwi is green to the max. If you want more, add green apples and pears. —Melissa McCabe, Long Beach, California
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint leaves
  • 4 cups cubed honeydew melon (about 1 small)
  • 2 cups green grapes
  • 4 medium kiwifruit, peeled, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 medium cucumber, halved lengthwise and sliced


  • For dressing, in a small bowl, whisk lime juice, honey and mint until blended. Place fruit and cucumber in a large bowl; add dressing and toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.
Health Tip: Swap cantaloupe for honeydew and get a boost of vitamin A. One cup of cantaloupe has a whopping 120% of the daily value, whereas honeydew only provides 2%. Most other nutrients amounts are similar between the melons.

    Flipping thru S&D when it first hit my mail box, this salad immediately caught my eye. Cutting it way down for just one was easy, and I made it without the mint and kiwi (didn't have them on hand), and it was out of this world. I will definitely make this again. Thanks, Melissa !
