Clean Eating Chicken Salad (No Fruit Involved)

Clean Eating Chicken Salad

It seems like all chicken salad recipes require apples, raisins, and nuts.  Yes those are good.  However I wanted something that tastes like my traditional chicken salad (or as close as possible) without all of the mayo.  After looking at about a dozen difference recipes for inspiration, I came up with a variation of my personal favorite that tastes pretty dang good!

Clean Eating Chicken Salad (No Fruit Involved)

  • 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of clean eating ranch dressing (OPI by Litehouse)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cp of grated carrots
  • 1 TBSP of dried celery flakes (or 2 TBSP of finely chopped celery)
  • 1 tsp of brown mustard
  • sea salt to taste
  1. Simply combine the yogurt, dressing, onion, carrots, celery, and mustard into a bowl.
  2. Stir the ingredients really well.  Taste it to see if you need to add salt or not. (That may depend whether or not you used salt when cooking the chicken.)  
  3. Combine your mixture with the chicken
  4. Refrigerate for an hour before serving.

Serving Suggestions:
