More About This Recipe
  • 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. But THIS Pecan Chicken Salad is ridiculous. 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, a tablespoon of mayo (I used organic), honey and lemon juice. SO GOOD. All whisked together and drizzled over the chicken salad. You can eat this any way you want! On a sandwich, in a wrap, or put little scoops of the salad in some crunchy romaine leaves!
