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

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.
