Eat This, Not That: Chicken Salad

Classic chicken salad with grapes celery and herbs

Chicken salad is a classic lunch time favorite that can be enjoyed on its own, or added to a salad or sandwich. It is a good source of protein, and therefore a great option for those looking to stay full throughout the day. This dish is typically made with mayonnaise, which can be high in fat. However, we have an easy replacement that can cut down on the fat, as well as add additional protein. Instead of making your chicken salad with mayonnaise, try using low-fat plain Greek yogurt instead. This will not only keep your chicken salad creamy, but will also reduce the amount of added calories from fat, so you can Eat This, Not That!
