Although I liked the combination of the strawberries, melon and cucumber, I didn't feel the lime juice really worked in this. It's probably just me, as other reviewers loved it. But I had to add extra honey and even a little bit of sugar to offset the taste of the lime flavor. Nice salad, but if you're not a big fan of lime, I'd leave it out, which is what I will do next time. The honey flavor, however, is wonderful.

Simple but very tasty. I liked the mix of cucumber with the fruit.

I doubled the recipe for a larger party and everyone loved it. I will make this again.

this is wonderful. I cut the honey down to 2 T. to get it to fit within my low carb diet. I also added about 5 or 6 fresh mint leaves and chilled a few hours to blend flavors. Beautiful and tasty and it doesn't heat up the kitchen. Also a very healthy recipe.
