"Dried cranberries add a sweet tartness to chicken and vegetable salad. Makes a delightful sandwich filling too. Serve on whole wheat bread with turkey bacon."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

low-fat plain yogurt
1 1/2 cups
cubed green apple
sliced red grapes
drained canned chicken
ground black pepper to taste
I omitted the seasoned salt, because I thought it would make it too salty. Right after I made it I tasted it, but it was bland. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE, the trick is it needs to sit overnight. The next day it was delicious! We are at the river or lake often & you can only have cold cuts for so many days in a row. We ate this for two days on the trip and we were sad when it was gone. I made it into sandwiches and served it on raisin bread, and we enjoyed it as a dip too. This is a keeper for sure!
I normally don't like chicken salad and I really think we might make this again :-) Even my husband liked it - even without the pepper. We used light Miracle Whip and fat free plain yogurt, two cubed chicken breasts from a left over rotisserie chicken and ripe red pear (since we did not have any grapes) and we did not have any nuts so we left them out. I can see this being very good in a whole wheat pita instead of regular sandwich bread like we did tonight. Will be using this one again.
Enjoyed the cranberries and the nuts. The tang of the yogurt can be overwhelming for someone who isn't used to subbing yogurt for mayo. Lucky for us, we enjoyed it very much. Great recipe!
I liked the lower fat option of this recipe. Loved the salad - tasted great.
My husband and I both enjoyed this. I don't care for celery so I left it out and used extra apple in its place. Next time I would use less cranberries and more chicken. The canned chicken was easy, but roasted or boiled fresh chicken might be tastier. I really liked how light this salad was and was not weighed down by a lot of mayonnaise.
Definitely the best chicken salad I have ever had!
Great recipe! Made this for a large group and they loved it. I left out the apples and grapes and added red onion, a little cayenne powder and some horseradish! Makes a great snack on crackers too!
This is very good. I did not have an apple so I couldn't add that. I did add two sliced green onions to half a recipe. Next time I would add more.
