Recipe: California Chicken Salad

I have never posted any recipes on my blog, but in honor of my sister's totally cool, to completely inspirational website, I have done this post. She is having a giveaway (Starbucks Coffee beans) to the person who submits the yummiest or prettiest or something-iest recipe and picture. I, of course, am not eligible for the award, but I thought it would be fun to participate anyway. Just zip on over to her site and check it out for yourself!
1/2 - 1 cup cooked, thinly sliced and chilled chicken breasts
1/2 small cantelope, pared, seeded and thinly sliced
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 medium avacado, pared and thinly sliced

dash of pepper
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp minced cilantro
2 Tbsp mild chunky salsa*
2 Tbsp plain lowfat yogurt

Onto each of two individual plates, arrange half of the lettuce. Decoratively arrange half of the chicken, cantelope and avacado over lettuce. In small bowl combine remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Spoon over salad.

*I used a mango peach salsa this time instead of traditional salsa. It was super yummy!

Such a lovely presentation! And it looks really yummy! I don't think I have ever had cantaloupe in a salad. I will have to try that out. Thanks for joining the fun!
