Melon and Chicken Salad


1 small cantaloupe or honeydew melon
6 cups of cooked chicken, cubed
2 cups celery, chopped
2 cups seedless green or red grapes
1 cup water chestnuts, sliced (optional)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
Salt and pepper to taste


Cut the melon in half and take out the seeds. With a melon baller, scoop out the flesh and carefully place the melon balls into a large bowl (if you don’t have a melon baller, cut the melon into bite-size cubes). Add the chicken, celery, grapes and optional water chestnuts to the melon and toss gently.

Mix together sour cream, yoghurt and curry powder in a small bowl and stir into the salad. Add salt and pepper to taste. This is a delicious and refreshing luncheon salad.
