A refreshing salad that can be enjoyed during the Summer or anytime! You can use whatever fruit is fresh and ripe, including melons, oranges, or nectarines. Prep time does not include time to cook the chicken.

Thanks, Kree for a light refreshing salad! I made it for dinner last night, as my husband and I are on a low carb diet and it was so good--I had peaches, but next time I will try another fruit just for variety. I think the walnuts add a nice touch, too. Carole in Orlando
