I love this chicken salad from Allrecipes.com:
Chicken salad isn’t always the healthiest option, but I tried to make it a little healthier. I’ve used both red and green grapes – as well as regular and golden raisins. I do like the darker colors just for the color contrast. I like to use rotisserie chicken – it’s quick, easy and moist. I also tend to use half mayo and half greek yogurt. You can use all greek yogurt as well – but I must admit, I like the mayo taste. I put less in than the recipe calls for – just enough to hold it sort of together. I like to serve it just in a bowl with some veggies on the side – but it’s also great in a pita half.
My obsession with my new Skinnytaste cookbook continues! And even more amazing…all 4 of us ate it. Yes – I got 2 teen boys to eat salad for dinner!! Okay – they had a scoop of mac-n-cheese on the side…but they ate salad. Main dish size salads. WINNER!
I used the cookbook – but also found the recipe on her blog. The amounts are different – but the proportions are the same. The cookbook version said it was enough for 4 servings. Pretty accurate – although we wanted more dressing than listed. Speaking of the dressing – my 13 year old liked it so much, he asked if I could just make this instead of buying his usual thick-chemical laden honey mustard dressing that he loves. One less processed food in the house – SCORE!
Here’s my place – my kids complimented me on how close it looked to the picture in the cookbook:
