Healthy Chicken Salad with Greek Yogurt

Mixing chicken salad ingredients with greek yogurt instead of the traditional condiment of mayonnaise cuts down on the fat and ups the protein in this yummy and healthy meal packed with fruit and flavor!


When I was heavy I made chicken salad almost every week for dinner.  I LOVED it!!! I would mix up chicken, onion, grapes, a few different seasoning, and a few big gobs of mayonnaise and spread it all on two big hoagie rolls and call it dinner. Yikes! No wonder I had to keep buying larger and larger pant sizes!!!

Chicken salad can be a very healthy meal...or very UNHEALTHY depending on how you make it and what you serve it on.  Today I have a super healthy way to share with you that still tastes great too!


This recipe gets lots of flavor from sweet fruit,  raw onions and a few seasonings so that it still tastes great mixed with just plain old greek yogurt.




This is perfect to prep in advance as well: I made a batch of this on Sunday and had some for lunch and saved the rest for dinners during the week.  I think it actually tastes better the next day after the flavors have had time to mix together while in the fridge.

You can serve it up anyway you like: make it into a sandwich, a wrap, or (since it is the beginning of the new year and we are all trying to be super healthy still) just serve it up on some lettuce wraps and enjoy!

  1. I haven't ever had chicken salad because I can't stand mayonnaise. I love Greek yogurt though, so I must give this a try!

  3. I’m a little late to the party on this one, but I just made this for the first time. It is GREAT! I don’t like “traditional” mayo-based chicken salad, so I really enjoy the light, sort of sweet flavor of this one. Thanks so much for a great recipe!
