I too used another type of greens instead of spinach and I opted for more watermelon and less mint. We found it to be both a luscious and visually appetizing salad. The Worcestershire sauce adds an additional flavor layer to the dressing that was quite appealing. I also sprinkled some sesame seeds and poppy seeds on top for eye appeal. Didn't use as much onion just some through-out. Didn't add the pecans and actually not sure if they're needed.


Made this for my monthly potluck tonight. Skipped the sesame seeds (didn't have any) and kinda winged the proportions ... but was tasty and different. Watermelon + mint was very nice. The mint wasn't overpowering (but, remember, I didn't follow the measurements/proportions exactly). Was good to serve watermelon as a savory (rather than sweet/dessert). I do recommend going easy on the amount of dressing you pour over the assembled salad... I'm left with (probably tasty) soupy leftovers. Oh ... and be sure to add the dressing at the absolute last minute. Enjoy.


I was skeptical, but it was really great! (I didn't have spinach so I used Romaine lettuce and I didn't have poppy seeds so I left those out too.) My husband practically licked the bowl. I will make this again.
