I found this recipe many years a go in a church cookbook. It's special enough for a fancy dinner but easy enough to fix for a light lunch. There's a kick to the tangy citrus dressing, which even my picky son enjoys.

Here’s a refreshing salad that’s great for lunches at work from Teresa Wilkins-Reckard in Monroe, Indiana. "I can mix up the dressing at home, then pick up enough salad ingredients at the store to last for several days," she notes. "My family and friends like it, too. And variations are easy to make.”
Apples add sweet-tart flavor and crunch to this lightened-up chicken salad that's lovely mounded on melon rings. Writes Nancy Daugherty from Cortland, Ohio, "Curry powder gives this fruity chicken a unique flavor and golden hue."
Meet the Cook: Back in the 1950's, I was a home economist for the electric company, which is how I came across this recipe. During spring and summer, when it is hot here, my family especially likes it. (My husband and I have two children and a pair of granddaughters, all grown.)
I've also found this chicken salad is good for women's luncheons and covered-plate meals since it's so different.
