Chicken Salad with Apples, Grapes and Cranberries in a Yogurt Dressing

Lilacs a harbinger of spring.

Minnesota lilacs in full bloom

Chicken Salad with Apples, Grapes, and Cranberries in a Yogurt Dressing

Cook's Notes: 
Add some healthiness to your chicken salad lunch with a yogurt dressing. Extra add-ins make this salad shine for a scrumptious meal. To reduce calories serve on a romaine lettuce leaf or with whole wheat bread.  
Salad Ingredients:
  • Chopped cooked chicken or shredded rotisserie chicken 
  • Chopped crisp apples
  • Dried cranberries or cherries
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Chopped celery
  • Halved red grapes
  • Romaine lettuce leaves
Yogurt Dressing
  • Plain Greek yogurt mixed with 1-2 teaspoons lite mayoniase

  • In a bowl add all salad ingredients except romaine.
  • Mix enough yogurt with mayonnaise only to moisten the salad. 
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours to chill salad mixture. 


  1. That salad sounds delicious.

    Interestingly enough, the post I have scheduled to publish on Friday is about lilacs.

  2. Thanks Sue, our ADRIENNE has chosen this post to be featured in the next Blogger's Pit Stop. Those lilacs look gorgeous :)
