A protein-packed alternative to the normal chicken salad. This one is healthier, quick, and easy to make. I peeled my apple, personal preference, but feel free to add it unpeeled.

I was very skeptical about the replacement of mayonnaise but OMG!! Amazing. I just sort of eyeballed it so it wasn’t exact but I think it’s a personal preference on texture. The flavor was great! I am on a high-protein diet so this was perfect. Read More

Yogurt and cottage cheese...who would have thought! It was tasty. Kids liked it, but I also kept our own spin on chicken salad sandwiches, by adding a diced granny smith, candied pecans, a halved red grapes! Similar to Arbys! We are glad to skip the mayo anytime. Read More
