Mayo-less Chicken Salad

17 Oct

I despise mayonnaise. The look, smell, sound of mayonnaise makes me ill. BUT, everything that’s made with mayonnaise looks appetizing! I got to thinking, what can I substitute in the recipes that call for mayonnaise?

Greek yogurt! It’s texture is similar to mayonnaise, but much healthier and appealing :).

Mayo-less Chicken Salad

  • 2c. shredded chicken breast (rotisserie chicken works wonders here!)
  • 1c. plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1T. Dijon mustard
  • 1T. lemon juice
  • 1T. balsamic vinegar (you can use white wine vinegar if you prefer)
  • 1t. honey
  • 1/2c. chopped celery
  • 1/2c. sweetened cranberries
  • 1/4c. slivered almonds
  • salt & pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate. Dig in!

When a recipe calls for mayonnaise, try subbing low-fat plain greek yogurt. You won’t even notice the difference, and the yogurt adds extra protein, healthy fat, and creaminess!
