This salad is wonderful and a great summer salad while cantaloupe are in full swing. I have made this twice this week. First time I made just like recipe stated except I did not use fresh mint. We loved it. I did mix all together and added the dressing right before serving. The second time I made it for a girls night out and tripled the recipe! IT was a big hit and is diffently a keeper. Everyone is amazed at the mint/apple jelly. It gives it a very nice and different taste.Try it and you'll enjoy.

This was a huge hit at our Fourth of July party. First of all, it is beautiful with the colors and the layered look so it makes an impression before anyone even tastes it. Then the apple/mint jelly takes 'em by surprise and the raving continues. I couldn't find apple mint jelly, so I bought both apple and mint and used 2TBSP of apple and 1TBSP of mint. I mixed the chopped mint in with the dressing too, and applied the dressing just before serving. I also struggled with the avocado at first, not able to get pretty slices. Finally, I sliced it in half long ways, and removed the pit. Then I turned each half open side down, and sliced it like you would a pepperoni. Then the skin peeled off each slice surprisingly easily.

Salad was very good but not the best. The dressing was voted by my guest to need some salt and pepper.
