Healthy Chicken Salad Recipe

posted by yazmin
A healthy twist on a traditional chicken salad recipe that adds tons of flavor with less fat and calories. The secret is to use nonfat Greek yogurt in place of regular mayonnaise. Making this simple substitution will save you over 300 calories and almost 40 grams of fat for the whole recipe! The result is still super creamy and delicious, but without any of the guilt.
