This tasty and healthy chicken salad will be your crew (and family) favorite.
Summer is a great time for salads and sandwiches. This chicken salad recipe is the perfect combination of both. I like to make this for lunch for the crew, they can put it on a wrap, some sandwich bread, or some lettuce. The recipe uses vanilla (low sugar) yogurt which adds some great health benefits and taste. Serve with some fruit and chips and you have a great lunch option. Give it a try!
