fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
cubed cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups
seedless green grapes, halved
cantaloupes, halved and seeded
Also great tossed with some penne with the cantaloup on the side!
I didn't have sour cream so I used vanilla yogurt, didn't have grapes so I used kiwi, didn't have celery so I used 1/4 t celery seed, didn't have lemon so I used lemon juice. I cooked some breaded chicken tenders I had in the freezer and cut them up for "chicken". I wanted to make sure my family ate the cantaloupe and didn't just eat out of it, so I cut the cantaloupe in chunks and mixed with dressing mixture .Served it on a bed of fresh spinach along side French bread and with soup.
One of the most refreshing things I have tasted in a long time! This is going to be a regular in our house, hands down! Especially during the summer! SO good! Thanks for the recipe!

Made this for a summer lunch...delicious! I used canned chicken and would also like to try canned tuna. I substituted chopped smoked almonds for regular almonds.
