Hands-on time 11 mins
Total time 11 mins
Yield Serves 4 (serving size: 1/2 cup salad and 1/2 cup crackers)
A combo of yogurt and mayo gives a traditional chicken salad more zip. We like the richness of white and dark meat, but you can use all one type. Serve with Steamed Sugar Snap Peas.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken (white and dark meat)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
