This was lunch today with a cup of mushroom soup. The lime brings a little bit of tartness to the dressing and the fresh ginger gives it just the right amount of zing. I did cut back on the amount of oil to reduce the fat grams, otherwise, followed the recipe. Good salad loaded with bright and fresh flavors. Don’t skip the almonds, as they give you another dimension of flavor. Thanks, Barrett, for a refreshing salad.

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!

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.

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.
