For a refreshing meal, Shirley Leister fixes this simple chicken salad with sweet cantaloupe. For a different presentation, the West Chester, Pennsylvania cook arranges the melon like flower petals on a lettuce-lined plate, then mounds the salad in the center.
This pad Thai-inspired raw food salad is hearty enough to serve as an entree. The flavor really comes from the freshly chopped cilantro, so whatever you do, don't substitute the raw fresh cilantro for dried. It just won't be the same if you do!
