Chicken Waldorf Salad with Yogurt Dressing.
This month, almost everyone I know is trying to lighten up his or her eating after having too much fun over the holidays. The salad below is hearty enough to have for dinner, sweet enough to keep you from feeling deprived, and apples are one of the most low-acid fruits you can choose.
3/4 cup yogurt (preferable Greek non-fat)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
4 cups 1/2 cups of cooked chicken
1 ½ cups diced Granny Smith apples
1 cup halved red seedless grapes
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup walnuts (optional to toast)
1/4 cup raisins
1 bag spring lettuce mix
Wisk the ingredients for the dressing together and set aside. Mix the first six salad ingredients together in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss to coat. Add the lettuce; toss gently to coat. Serve as a side or as an entrée.
