Instead of tossing grapes or cherries into your favorite chicken salad sandwich, why not add a few pieces of juicy, ripe cantaloupe? The delicious addition of the melon paired with the lemon and chicken make one amazing salad! Scoop a few hefty spoonfuls of this delicious stuff between two pieces of bread for a great twist on a normal chicken salad sandwich. 


  • 2 cups of rotisserie chicken, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped cantaloupe
  • 1/2 stalk of celery, chopped
  • 1/2 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Mix the chicken, celery, red onion and salt and pepper together in a medium-sized bowl. Add the cantaloupe and mix well.
  2. Mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice and salt and pepper together until fully combined. Scoop the mixture over the chicken and stir to combine.
  3. Chill for 30 - 60 minutes before eating and enjoy!
