A Fruity Chicken Salad

Combine green salad, chicken salad and fruit salad and you get this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Chicken and Cantaloupe Strawberry Salad, a delicious, cancer-fighting entrée.

Cantaloupe’s orange hue tells you it’s loaded with beta-carotene, which our bodies turn into vitamin A – a powerful antioxidant. Beta-carotene is most protective when it’s absorbed from healthy foods like cantaloupe, carrots and some green items like broccoli.

That’s true for all cancer-fighting vitamins and phytochemicals, as well as fiber. Vitamin C-rich strawberries in this dish, walnuts (sources of omega-3 fats) and salad greens all contribute 4 grams of fiber per serving. Dish it up with some whole-grain bread to add even more cancer-fighting fiber.

The chicken and yogurt are the protein sources that complete this flavorful meal. For more simple and delicious cancer-preventive recipes, visit the AICR Test Kitchen. Click here to subscribe to our weekly Health-e-Recipes.
