CHICKEN CANTALOUPE SALAD






CHICKEN CANTALOUPE SALAD

The cantaloupe takes the place of grapes in this salad.  The pieces of cantaloupe are just as juicy and it is a bonus that there is no skin. If your cantaloupe is not very sweet, then sweeten first before adding to the salad. My husband loved having this salad in the refrigerator as it helped him to lose weight.  He was doing Intermittent Fasting from 5 pm the day before and then at lunch he had this salad which ensured he stayed in ketosis until 4 or 5 pm when he had his supper.  It really helps satiate the appetite. 

5 cups chopped chicken (1.25 L)
2 cups chopped cantaloupe (500 mL)
4 hard-boiled eggs
4 medium-sized green onions, chopped
Paprika
Creamy Dijon Sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise (250 mL)
1/4 cup sour cream (60 mL)
11/2 tsp Dijon mustard (7 mL)
1 tsp parsley (5 mL)
1 tsp lemon juice (5 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

In large bowl, combine chicken, cantaloupe, hard-boiled eggs and green onions.  Pour creamy Dijon Sauce over salad and toss gently.  Sprinkle the top of the salad with paprika.  Refrigerate until serving time.

Creamy Dijon Sauce:  In medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard, parsley, lemon juice, salt and black pepper.  Stir to combine well.

Helpful Hint:  If your cantaloupe does not taste sweet, sweeten with a few drops of no-carb liquid sweetener, before adding to the salad.
