  • 3 ounces chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup diced honeydew melon
  • 2 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

Directions

  • Cut the cantaloupe half into three wedges; cover and chill two of the wedges. Peel and dice the remaining wedge; set aside.
