Chicken Salad with Cucumber and Melon
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
2 cups cantaloupe and/or honeydew, cubed
1 cup cucumber, finely chopped
1 cup zucchini, finely chopped
1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup lime or lemon juice
2 tablespoons salad oil
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons cilantro or mint, snipped
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
salad greens or melon halves
Toss together the chicken, cubed melon, cucumber, zucchini and
green onions in a large mixing bowl.
For dressing, combine lime juice, salad oil, water, cilantro or
mint, sugar and pepper in a screw-top jar. Cover and shake well.
Drizzle 1/2 cup of the dressing over the chicken and melon mixture.
Toss lightly to coat. Chill remaining dressing for another use.
(I used it all.)
Divide melon mixture among salad greens or melon halves. Serve
