I have been experimenting with my chicken salad. I have never been one for a salad with a TON of mayo, and in an effort to be healthy, I have been looking for ways to cut back on fat.
With that in mind, I have been trying to find a substitute for the mayo in my chicken salad.
I started by replacing all of the mayo with fat free plain greek yogurt. It wasn’t bad….but it wasn’t good either. I ate it, but I can’t say I was looking forward to ever eating that again. Sigh….I figured I would play with the ratio of mayo to yogurt and FINALLY came across the perfect combination – 2/3 yogurt to 1/3 mayo. Low fat, delicious, and as an added bonus – extra protein from the yogurt. Now I just need to eat it on greens and not in a roll….baby steps people, baby steps!
