I really enjoyed this meal. it was light and refreshing. I used low fat mayonnaise and sour cream. I also minced the celery. I like my cantaloupe really ripe and juicy so the only thing I would change for next time is I'd cut the cantaloupe in small pieces and just add it to the mix and eat it our of a regular bowl. The problem was as I cut into the cantaloupe the mix just became a bit watery.
This was GREAT! I used non-fat mayo and non-fat sour cream. I did not have any grapes. I added a bit of tarragon to the dressing as well. Don't skip the almonds!
