Chicken Salad with Cooling melons is a beautiful and tasty dish and can be served at room temperature. With their high water content, melons have a cooling effect and help aid digestion. Together with watercress, they balance the fire element of hot summers. Chicken breast harmonizes Qi flow and provides energy.

Feel free to substitute the melons with other seasonal fruits or cube the melons if pressed for time.
