this.

is.

it.

the chicken salad of your dreams.  that is, if you’re the type of girl who dreams about food, like i do.

okay, here’s how good it is:  i don’t like chicken all that much.  i really don’t like chicken salad.  and i don’t like yogurt.  but for some reason, this chicken salad with yogurt dressing is a home run.

this chicken salad is much like the curried chicken salad that i love so much, but with more of a fresh herb, italian flare to it.

check it out…

  • make the dressing first: in the bottom of a large mixing bowl, whisk the following ~ 1/3 cup greek yogurt, a dollop of strawberry preserves, a couple glugs balsamic vinegar, a dollop of stone ground mustard, S&P, and handful of fresh chopped basil.
  • Grocery store rotisserie chicken is your best friend ~ take off the skin and chop and drop.
  • Add veggies: celery, red onion, shredded carrots, broccoli, or broccoli slaw, if you’re lazy like me.
  • Add fruit: a small can of mandarin oranges, halved red and green grapes, golden raisins.
  • Add nuts: something crunchy like pistachio nut-meats, cashews, or even peanuts.
  • Toss and refrigerate. Serve over baby spinach leaves, or in lettuce cups!
