Summer Chopped Chicken Salad
with cantaloupe / pistachios / feta

Active: 25 minTotal: 25 min

Made with leftover grilled chicken from earlier in the week, this summery salad (originally from 2018) is perfect for a hot day - no cooking required! Fresh cantaloupe might sound like an unusual ingredient to add to a salad, but it provides a cool, slightly sweet note to balance out the other ingredients.

I was surprised with a night I had to work and was so so grateful to have this meal. Protein dependencies are the bessssst! I was still able to have this delicious healthy salad and work late!
