Includes Some Great Flavors
This healthy chicken salad recipe includes some great flavors such as lemon pepper, garlic, and mayonnaise. Some people use a reduced fat mayonnaise but it really doesn’t matter because you have plenty of fat (not greasy) to give the salad that velvety texture. Using yogurt gives it a nice creamy texture that is good for people watching their cholesterol. Using a yogurt based dressing also gives the salad a smooth texture. If you don’t like the texture of the dressing try using lime juice instead.
