Healthy Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad

healthy chicken salad

Like any true southern girl I love a good chicken salad recipe. Leave the loaded mayo versions (yuck) in the past and swap it out for one with greek yogurt, diced apples, red onion and dried cranberries for a healthier twist. This chicken salad is super easy to make — save yourself the time and pick up a rotisserie chicken or the ‘just chicken’ from Trader Joe’s. Serve it atop fresh lettuce, toasted pita, or with a side of crackers (try Mary’s— so good!).
