    I agree, becomes very soupy. You'd have to eat right away. Only was so-so in our family.

    Delicious! FYI, you can get enough cantaloupe chunks from 1 melon. I think you could probably add a touch more lime, too. But it was so refreshing and healthy for a hot summer evening! My husband had 3 helpings!

    The combination of flavors were appealing in this recipe. However, the melon breaks down so quickly that it in turn breaks down the delicious dressing and alas,..... you have a soupy salad.
