I have been in the mood for chicken salad, but didn’t want just the plain boring chicken and mayo kind. So after perusing a couple different websites and blogs I decided I liked the combination listed below. I tried it and it was actually a bit hit with my husband, too. So this is a definite keeper, perfect to have handy as the weather is getting nicer.
You will need:
2 1/2 to 3 cups chicken, cooked and cubed (I bought a pack from Trader Joes)
1 cup chopped walnuts
3-4 stalks celery, cleaned and chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 cup dried cranberries
1/4 mayonnaise (my favorite is Duke’s)
1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
handful chopped fresh herbs (parsley or tarragon)
salt & pepper
Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl and taste for seasoning. Super easy and really delicious. I have been eating it for lunch on little flatbreads as a sandwich.
