Step By Step  

This Pecan Chicken Salad has a light yogurt dressing that'll make you dance ... like a chicken.

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

A Pecan Chicken Salad that won't send your waistline into hysterics.

I used to LOVE eating Waldorf salads. Still do. But the idea of shoveling ice-cream scoops of mayo into my belly made me do the ugly cry. 

Okay, lots of things do, but that's neither hither nor nither. 

But THIS Pecan Chicken Salad is ridic. Not only do you sear and chop the chicken, you're adding flecks of awesomeness with chopped kale, red grapes, pecans, parsley, celery and red onion. 

But the GREATNESS of the salad comes in the dressing. Yoplait Greek yogurt, dudes. Okay and a tablespoon of mayo (I used organic so you're allowed to think I'm cool), honey and lemon juice. SO GOOD. All whisked together and drizzled over the chicken salad. Stupid good. 

Plus did you know today is Dance Like a Chicken Day? Like you need an excuse. 

 

Pecan Chicken Salad

Okay! Get that chicken seared and chopped. 

 

Pecan Chicken Salad

In a large bowl, toss together the chicken, pecans, celery, red onion, kale, parsley and grapes. So purty! Now, you can stick this bowl in the fridge for a little bit if you want. It's nice if the salad is on the cold side.

In another small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mayo, honey and lemon juice. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Now drizzle the glory over the chicken salad.

Toss, toss, toss. 

 

Pecan Chicken Salad

You can eat this any way you want! On a sandwich, in a wrap, as is. I put little scoops of the salad in some romaine leaves to feel good about myself. 

It worked. 

Dance like a chicken!
