Strawberry, Cucumber & Honeydew Salad

Strawberries and cucumbers together—I just love this combination! We used to eat a lot of cucumbers growing up in upstate New York. We'd get them, along with strawberries and melons, from fruit and veggie stands to make this sweet and tangy salad. —Melissa Mccabe, Long Beach, California

    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.
