I recently blogged about a lecture I attended on Super Foods. I promised to share three recipes from that lecture using Super Foods. This Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad is the first of those three recipes. The Super Foods used in this recipe are the Greek yogurt and the almonds, as well as the apples and cucumber slices.

This chicken salad was tasty and creamy. I didn’t miss the mayonnaise at all. If you are looking for a traditional chicken salad recipe using mayonnaise, you can find it here.

Ingredients:
1 chicken breast, cooked, chilled and shredded
1 small apple, diced
1/4 cup roasted almonds, chopped
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
sea salt and pepper to taste
cucumber slices

Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients together
  • Serve on cucumber slices

Yield: 2 Servings
