Ingredients

Servings  4  

For the Chicken Salad:

  • 1/4 cup fat-free, plain yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp salt-free, dried Italian spice blend or dried thyme, dried basil or both combined
  • 2 cups skinless, shredded chicken breast of a rotisserie-cooked chicken OR
  • 20 oz canned, salt-free white meat chicken (drained)
  • 3 Tbsp chopped, unsalted, uncoiled walnuts (or whatever nuts are on sale)
  • 1/2 cup halved, seedless grapes OR
  • sugar-free, dried fruit like prunes or cranberries
  • 1 red (sweeter) or green (more tart) apple, finely chopped

For the Green Salad:

  • 1 head lettuce (green leaf, red leaf or romaine), cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 chopped cucumber (chopped, peeled if desired)
  • 1 large tomato (chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil

Directions

Chicken Salad

  1. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, and spice blend in a large bowl with a fork.
  2. Add chicken, nuts, grapes, and chopped apple. Stir to combine.

Green Salad

  1. In a bowl, combine chopped lettuce, cucumber, and tomato.
  2. Add oil and vinegar, stirring to combine with salad.
  3. Serve salad greens with chicken salad on top.

Cooking Tip: If you like sweetness, grab a red apple; if sour-tart is more your thing, pick a green one. Also, chopped apples will turn brown very quickly, but the yogurt in the chicken salad will stop this from happening.

Keep it Healthy: Combining a little light mayonnaise with no-fat yogurt is a great way for a delicious and still tasty salad.

Tip: When nuts are on sale, buy more than needed and store in a sealable bag in the freezer to keep fresh.
