    We have even roasted it in the oven as a topping for salmon - 400 for 20 minutes  -  09 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made for Recipe Group. Hubby and I both liked this, we ate almost the whole bowl at dinner one night. You know when something is 'moreish' it's pretty darned good! I used a chili garlic sauce and rice vinegar. Lemon basil is a nice touch, little lighter than regular basil with that lemony undertone. Eating tomato and melon together was a little weird for me, but it works well together. It was definitely spicier the next day for the chili sauce. Thanks for the recipe!  -  13 Jul 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We love this refreshing salad! I used Black Cherry Tomatoes and Basil from my garden. The flavors go together so well with the sweet of the honey and then the tang of the vinegar. Give this recipe another five stars because it is so beautiful. Thank you Doug Matthews  -  18 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
