Since my fruit was super sweet, I used about a tbsp. of honey instead of the sugar, the grated rinds and juices of one lime and one orange. No soda in the house, so I added a splash of club sod...

I didn't measure the melons & I used honeydew melon, sprite melon & blueberries. Everyone enjoyed this but most felt that it was a little too "minty".... maybe because I had more sauce versus me...

This salad was delicious and refreshing. At first it tasted like there was too much orange, but the orange flavor mellowed after 2 days or so. Next time I might reduce the amount of orange juice...
