Traditional chicken salad recipe, made lighter! This still tastes as good as the original, with a fraction of the calories. Add a leaf of lettuce instead of eating your chicken salad on bread and save massive calories.
Many people like to use yogurt in place of the mayo to lighten up a chicken salad. I prefer light mayo to keep the flavor the same! To me, the difference between light mayo and the full calorie variety is not that different.
I like to make the chicken salad ahead of time and store it in the fridge to eat all week. We put it on bread, in tortillas, on rolls, and on lettuce.
