  • Summary

    Easy chicken salad filled with tender chicken, dried cranberries, walnuts, apples, celery, dill, and parsley. For a healthier option, you can use Greek yogurt in the dressing and serve the chicken salad on lettuce instead of bread.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    • 1/4 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt (I prefer light sour cream or lowfat yogurt)
    • 1 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon minced flat leaf parsley
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
    • 3 cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken (I use white meat from a rotisserie chicken)
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery or finely chopped apple
    • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
    • 1/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts (see note)
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • Carrots
    • Berries
    • Cheese Slices
    • Mini M&Ms
    • Multi grain Crackers
