  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
     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.
