Cantaloupe Salad Reviews

  • Interesting twist on a fruit salad - its kind of like prosciutto and melon (which is very good). I liked this but opted to omit the bacon and reduced the amount of dressing - I used 2-3T and it was plenty. As I suspected the bananas didnt hold up and I would probably leave those out next time.

  • Maybe I am not a poppy seed dressing lover. It all sounded good but the dressing made everything "slimey" with a "I dont like this taste" flavor. Bacon, onions and cantaloupes were great together, though.

  • Certainly not something that I would have thought of myself, but the sweet, salty and savory flavors really do work I used a raspberry dressing for this and it was delicious. Thanks

  • This was a wonderful salad. I sprinkled the bacon and onions on each plate so any leftover wouldnt get soggy. A keeper for sure

  • This is a terrific salad Easy to make and yummy. I really like the combination of sweet and savoury tastes. I think prosciutto would be nice instead of the bacon when you dont feel like frying. In my small town I had trouble finding poppy seed dressing. I eventually found one by Renees, which was good. The only other offering was Kraft Creamy Poppyseed, which looked a bit too creamy for this. Id be interested to know what other people used.Great recipe Donna

  • I was not sure about this recipe with the onions, but decided to give it a try and am I glad. It was GREAT

  • Not a good recipe. Enough said.

  • I make this all the time in the summer - everyone loves it. Were vegetarian, so I use vegetarian strips (Stripples or Morningstar Farm breakfast strips - put them in the oven until theyre crispy, but watch that they dont burn) instead of bacon.
