Chicken & Fruit Salad

Chicken, melon, walnuts and feta top mixed salad greens for a refreshing summer salad. Use your favorite summer fruit in place of the melon if you wish

  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time: 15 Minutes


  • 1/4 cup(s) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 3 tablespoon(s) vinegar
  • 4 teaspoon(s) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon(s) poppy seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • ground pepper to taste
  • 8 cup(s) salad greens
  • 2 cup(s) cooked chicken breast
  • 2 cup(s) chopped melon cantaloupe &/or honeydew
  • 1/4 cup(s) walnuts chopped, toasted
  • 1/4 cup(s) feta cheese


Whisk sour cream, vinegar, sugar, poppy seeds, salt and pepper in a large bowl until smooth. Reserve 1/4 cup of the dressing in a small bowl. Add the mixed greens to the large bowl and toss to coat. Divide among 4 plates and top with chicken, melon, walnuts and feta. Drizzle each portion with 1 tablespoon of the reserved dressing.


Tips: To poach chicken breast: Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan and add lightly salted water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.

To toast chopped or sliced nuts, heat a small dry skillet over medium-low heat. Add nuts and cook, stirring, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
