This is as easy-to-make lightened-up version on cobb salad, using corn, honeydew melon, and roasted turkey breast from you grocery deli department. A tip for shopping for turkey breast from your deli, is to ask for a piece cut from a whole store-roasted breast instead of the pressed deli-meat variety. Recipe comes from Good Housekeeping.
- 4 slices bacon
- 1⁄3 cup fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper, coarsely ground

- 12 ounces deli peppered turkey breast, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 3-4 ears)
- 1 lb honeydew melon, cut into 1/2- inch chunks (I use the container of honeydue melon pieces that I find in my local store)
