Chicken Salad with Mango and Apple

chicken salad

Here’s a quick and easy recipe that you can throw together for a fast lunch or dinner.  It comes from the “My Recipes” website.  I changed it up a bit to make it a little less curry and a little more sweet.  I ate mine on Dave’s Killer Bread while Bob made lettuce wraps with his.

1/2 cup plain low fat Greek style yogurt

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon honey (I used blackberry honey so I left out the curry to make ours a little sweeter)

1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder

salt and pepper

3 cups (about 8 oz) shredded skinless rotisserie chicken (I used a Costco can of chicken)

1 Granny Smith apple, cored and diced

1 mango, peeled, pitted and diced (forgot to buy one)

1 rib celery, diced

3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

1  In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, honey, curry powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Cover and chill until ready to use.

2  In a large bowl, toss chicken, apple, mango, celery and onion.  Add dressing and toss well.  Season with salt and pepper.
