A good use for leftover chicken. You can substitute other melons, papaya, pineapple, mushrooms, or water chestnuts for the grapes or the honeydew melon.

So tasty but be warned - this is a tasty dish to take to a pot luck dinner but don't volanteer to take anything else. Here in NZ we paid 6 for the melon 16 for the chicken 4 for the sour cream and 5 for the plain yoghurt. 4 for the celery 4 for the grapes. This means a total of 41 dollars. But then I saw how many people it was for (10) and then that works out at 4.10 per person. Read More

I love this recipe. I make it without the water chestnuts because my husband doesn't like them and it is still wonderful. Great salad for lunches! Read More

This is a nice summer salad. It is best when all the ingredients are cold. The submitter suggested using cantaloupe in place of the honeydew and that is what I did. The dressing is light and the curry powder adds a nice touch of flavor. Thanks Jen for sharing. Read More
