In this perfect no-cook dish you can substitute crumbled bacon for
the chicken or just omit the meat altogether.
Cut zucchini crosswise diagonally into 1/8-inch-thick slices using
slicer and transfer to a colander set over a bowl. Sprinkle with
salt, tossing to coat, and let stand 5 minutes, then rinse under
cold water. Arrange in 1 layer on paper towels and pat dry.
Cut melon wedges lengthwise into 1/8-inch-thick slices using slicer.
Divide melon, zucchini, and chicken among 4 plates. Shave about one
fourth of cheese into curls with a vegetable peeler and divide curls
and mint among the 4 plates. Drizzle each plate with oil and lime
juice. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
