Ingredients
1/4 cup  reduced-fat sour cream
3 tablespoons  fruit-flavored vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons  poppy seeds
1/4 teaspoon  salt
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
8 cups  mixed salad greens
2 cups  sliced cooked chicken breast, (see Tip)
2 cups  chopped melon, such as cantaloupe and/or honeydew
1/4 cup  chopped walnuts, toasted (see Tip)
1/4 cup  crumbled feta cheese
Directions
1. Whisk sour cream, vinegar, sugar, poppy seeds, salt and pepper in a large bowl until smooth. Reserve 1/4 cup of the dressing in a small bowl. Add the mixed greens to the large bowl and toss to coat. Divide among 4 plates and top with chicken, melon, walnuts and feta. Drizzle each portion with 1 tablespoon of the reserved dressing.
Tips:
To poach chicken breast: Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan and add lightly salted water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.
To toast chopped or sliced nuts, heat a small dry skillet over medium-low heat. Add nuts and cook, stirring, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
