Greek Tzatziki Chicken Salad

I just love a good creamy chicken salad packed with lots of veggies.  This Greek one is really good because it uses Greek Yogurt for the sauce base - and not just as a substitute for mayonnaise.

In true chicken salad style, this is better the second day, if you can resist it that long and not just eat it straight out of the bowl.


2/3 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
3/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cucumber, seeded and shredded
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups shredded skinless, boneless chicken breast (Cooked!) Mine was a Deli Chicken

Bread, Crackers, Whole Grain Wrap, Pita Chips, Lettuce Leaves for wrapping - Imagine! 


Combine first 8 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add chicken; toss to coat.
