Chicken Salad with Melon - Aug 2011

This meal is perfect for a day like today (over 90 degrees and high humidity in Minneapolis), although Nick and I actually had this a couple weeks ago already. This was our second chicken salad of the summer and this go around I added lots of fresh celery grown on our Farm. This celery tasted different than the kind you find in all the grocery stores year round. This was celery, amplified by 10! It made it's store bought counterpart seem pale and watered down. That refreshing green flavor was the stand-out in the dish, with the other ingredients (chicken, slivered almonds, onion, dried cranberries, Dijon and mayonnaise) playing wonderful supportive roles. We served the salad cold alongside chilled, sweet melon. It was fantastic. I wish I had more to eat tonight.
