Another cool and refreshing way to serve your holiday fruit salad.You can make it with a tangy citrus dressing or with a creamy cream cheese sauce, just with icy cold 7UP poured over top, or a scoop of ice cream or sherbet.
For a party use 2 or 3 melons cut in half and make different toppings, and let guests choose their own topping.
