"The best review I can give comes from when I served this to my grandsons- ages 6 and 9 yrs. The youngest saying "I like this more better than the other kind (plain watermelon)." And, because watermelon is his favorite food- that was a good endorsement. I think this would make a lovely salad to serve at a summer picnic, or ladies luncheon. It is refreshing, and suprising"
