More About This Recipe

  • Fans of the Waldorf salad will appreciate this version that’s not drenched in mayonnaise. With its yogurt-based dressing, this pecan chicken salad is… frankly ridiculous. Not only does it involve juicy seared chicken, but then there’s the chopped kale, red grapes, pecans, parsley, celery and red onion. Yoplait® Greek yogurt, a tablespoon of mayonnaise, honey and lemon juice are whisked together and drizzled over the pecan chicken salad for maximum deliciousness. Eat it however you want – on a sandwich, in a wrap, or on a fresh and crunchy romaine leaf.
