I make this salad often in hot weather and usually use a mixture of melons, whatever I have to hand. On occasion I add celery, radishes or apple slices (anything crunchy and not too sweet) and even left-over cold Jersey Royal potatoes, which worked well. Served on lightly dressed salad leaves it is a summer feast!

Scrummy - and spicy. I added lentils and watercress to bulk it out into a main meal.

Absolutely delicious. What a great mix of fresh flavours. I made this last night for some friends who were blown away by it. I took note of an earlier comment and halved the chili, which was perfect. We will definitely be making this one again.

Have to disagree with all the positive ratings. I was very disappointed with this recipe. Although it tasted ok, I found the dressing a bit watery and lacking body. I doubt if I will make it again.
