Healthy Chicken Salad with Apples & Cranberries


  • ▢ 

    2 ½ cups chopped cooked chicken
  • ▢ 

    3 stalks celery, chopped
  • ▢ 

    1 cup chopped apple, about 1 large; I used a Pink Lady and kept the peel because it was organic

    ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

    2 tablespoons Hellman’s light mayonnaise
  • ▢

    2 tablespoons chopped parsley (optional)
  • ▢ 

    Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place the chicken, celery, apple and cranberries in a bowl and stir to combine and then set it aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, mayonnaise and lemon juice.
  • Add this to the chicken mixture and stir to mix well.
  • Stir in the parsley if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Recipe Notes


No chicken? Substitute leftover turkey, canned chicken or canned tuna.

No mayonnaise? Use all plain Greek yogurt instead.

No yogurt? Use all light mayonnaise instead.

No dried cranberries? Most any chopped dried fruit would work.
