Chicken Salad & Apple with Tangy Dressing

Chicken Salad and Apple with Tangy Dressing | Clean Eating Recipes

One of my favorite things to eat for lunch is a nice healthy salad. But I can’t stand a boring salad – you know, some lettuce with a piece of chicken on it. This salad is full of flavor, and because it’s made with greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise it’s really light and tastes delicious. The apples give it a good crunch and the tangy dressing is delicious!

Like any salad, this is infinitely flexible – you could add in walnuts or slivered almonds, or skip the apple and do cranberries. You could do a yogurt-based dressing instead of the tangy one, or swap out the cole slaw base for your favorite lettuce. (I’ve made this on Arugula and Spinach before and it’s been awesome!). You can also swap the chicken for tuna and make this a tuna salad salad. LOL.
