Fun and refreshing, this simple salad is the essence of summer served up in a melon half and dressed with a tangy citrus sauce. Lovely! —Sally Maloney, Dallas, Georgia

    I would have never thought of using orange marmalade and lemonade together. It was sweet and tangy. Pretty tasty. Definitely different from just a bowl of fruit. It was better the next day after the marinade soaked in. I'm not crazy about cantaloupe. It gave it a good taste in my opinion.
