Reviews for Cantaloupe Chicken Salad for Two
"Very good -the touch of ginger and lemon a big plus -I used rotisserie chicken and it is cantaloupe season in SD right now so this meal was quick and easy"
"I have made it twice and it is wonderful. The only change I made was that I used light mayo & light sour cream instead of fat-free. The lemon juice, lemon peel & ginger made it really tasty!"

"Very good! The essence of summer on a plate. I hate ginger, so left that out, and I forgot to include the green onions, but it was still delicious. Make sure you have a ripe, juicy cantaloupe."
"I don't see the ingredient lists. I see the diections but no ingredients"
