"Melons and watercress make great summer dessert salads. If you cannot find any watercress, try some fresh mint instead." — Barrett

fresh lime juice
minced fresh ginger root
watercress, trimmed and chopped
2 1/2 cups
2 1/2 cups
toasted and sliced almonds
I made this for a dinner party and everyone loved it. The lime dressing is very light and a perfect compliment to the melon and watercress!
A little bit bizarre. It was worth trying once though.
I love this salad, its so fresh!
I like lime vinegarette, but I didn't like this one....tried to figure out why. It is too tart for the fruit. I want enough lime to make it "bright" but not actually "tart" and this one was "tart". I looked at my other lime vinegarette dressing recipe to see what was different. My other one has 1 TB of honey in it..so I added 1 TB on honey and tasted it. Much better. I will just keep my previous lime dressing though.
LOVE THIS! I had just picked up some watercress and wanted to do something light to go with dinner. I added honey instead of sugar to the dressing and ginger powder instead of fresh. SO yummy! The best part is, it can be changed during the season. I think I might try it with peaches next. Thank you for sharing!
