Chicken Salad made with Yogurt

A day in the kitchen and I'm spent. I only wish that this blogging thing would go on auto pilot for at least a few days but, unless I sit down and get my brain to think creatively and my fingers to type, nothing gets posted and I'm behind. I have to say, those that not only cook, but take beautiful pictures are commendable but those who consistently blog is beyond me. Enough complaining, on to blogging!
P and I had a great weekend! It was hot but we managed! One fun thing that we did was a bike ride to Target! We finally got helmets this weekend so we would be legal riding up and down the streets of Dallas so that's just what we did, downtown Dallas watch out! We were out for about an hour and a half and walked in our apartment drenched in sweat. Poor Kaepo got left out on this adventure and we both think he knew it because for about an hour after we got home he whined. :(

After such a hot bike ride, I'm glad that I chose a light, cold meal. Chicken Salad! I have looked up and down and all around for a healthy version of Chicken Salad. You will find yogurt based salads but they all have just a bit of mayo and I am anti-mayo. So, I decided to make one up on my own. With a combination of the things in our fridge and things that both P and I liked, I'm impressed with the outcome and wouldn't doubt it if I make this one again! That says A LOT! I am really enjoying these cold salads for dinner- it's nice to avoid microwave and they always seem like a nice complement to a hot summer day.

Chicken Salad with Yogurt
1/2 C Greek yogurt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp crushed dried rosemary
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp dried dill
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
pinch of sugar
2 C shredded chicken
1 large bunch of broccoli chopped
1/2 c red grapes halved
1/4 c sliced almonds toasted

1. In a small bowl mix the first 8 ingredients (from yogurt to sugar).
2. In a large bowl toss together broccoli, chicken, grapes.
3. Poor the yogurt mixture on the chicken mixture and mix until everything is nice and wet.
4. Top with almonds and put on a bead of lettuce.

*I also sprinkled some feta on P's salad and cherry tomatoes on mine!


  1. I cannot wait to give this one a try.

  2. are you as anti-mayo with that new mayo product made from olive oil? :)

  3. i have seen that but still am not fond of the other ingredients! I have recently discovered another substitute for mayo that I cant wait to post about!! :)
