Melon & Chicken Pasta Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/melon_chicken_pasta_salad.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2013

Melon, prosciutto and dried cranberries pair well together in this chicken pasta salad recipe. Fresh grilled chicken breast is best, but you can save time by using roasted or grilled chicken from the supermarket. For the best flavor, combine the pasta salad with the dressing about 1 hour before serving.
