  1. Thank you for sharing this recipe! The combination of sweet and savory flavors from the fruit, cheese, and dressing sounds delicious. I especially love the addition of mint and basil leaves for a fresh and herbaceous twist. The use of a star cutter for the melon is a cute touch and adds to the festive presentation. I can’t wait to try this recipe at my next gathering! 👍👏👌😊
