    The cilantro adds a flavor that sets the recipe apart. The melons, when ripe, and the salsa is served chilled really is delicious. I've also usede green chili peppers with the recipe, as some find the Jalapeno a bit too hot  -  18 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Every time I serve this, several people ask for the recipe. It is a great side for a summer cookout and is best if you make it ahead and chill over night so all the flavor mingle. Serve it immediately out of the fridge for a great hot and cold effect.  -  25 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    If you do try this, cut the amount of onion by at least 3/4ths.  -  19 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
