Vivienne's Melon -Cucumber French Salad

The Vivienne's Melon -Cucumber French Salad is the result of a French restaurateurs gift to Vivienne.  During lunch at a bistro in Monoao she got a call from the royal family for a unique salad they could serve at a royal function.  Vivienne spent the rest of the day in the restaurateurs kitchen to create this healthy and exciting salad.
