MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 8, 2010

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

MY REVIEW

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.
