Green Apple Chicken Salad

Yield: 4-6 servings

The original recipe called for mayonnaise as a dressing. I almost always substitute plain yogurt for mayonnaise in dressings and dips with great success. It works here too. See my post on how to poach chicken.


  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 poached boneless, skinless chicken breasts, medium dice
  • 2 stalks celery, small dice
  • 1/2 green apple, cored, medium dice
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup red onion, small dice
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted


  1. In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to combine the yogurt, vinegar, mustard, and honey.
  2. To the bowl, add the remaining ingredients – chicken, celery, apple, raisins, and walnuts. Mix to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cool before serving.
