    I became so addicted to this combination, I (gasp) purchased a watermelon in February just to have the salad. It does not maintain structural integrity very well but it is still a delight.

    just remembered - don't toss too early - toss at last minute or it gets too watery. Doesn't really keep well in my opinion, but it's very good.

    I love this. Easy and so refreshing! I love the sweet with the salty/spicy.

    This was okay. Everyone who tried it said they liked it, and it was certainly unusual. I don't know that I will ever suffer from a serious craving for it, but I'd eat it if the opportunity arose. Probably won't make it myself unless I have all the ingredients handy
