Healthy Chicken Salad with Apples & Cranberries

Leftover rotisserie chicken, apples, celery, and dried cranberries in a light creamy Greek yogurt based dressing combine to create this light and delicious healthy chicken salad with apples and cranberries.

Which reminds me of a classic Waldorf salad – only lighter – and with chicken.

I served this chicken salad with apples and cranberries for lunch on a bed of mixed greens and baby arugula. And garnished it with a little shredded carrot and chopped cucumber.

Healthy Chicken Salad with Apples & Cranberries

Prep Time; 10 mins
Total Time; 10 mins

  • 2 1/2 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
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Hellman's light mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
First, 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.
Serve & enjoy!
