Reviews forMisty Melon Salad
"More work than it is worth. It took much more than 20 min. to peel and slice that stuff and the flavor is just so so."
"This was wonderful. I didn't use the honeydew melon. I added green grapes and blueberries for color. I also doubled the dressing, but that really wasn't necessary."
