I received some questions about the salad recipes on a recent post.  Several people wanted a low fat version.  So here it is!

Chicken Salad (Low fat version)

1 – 2 Boneless skinless chicken breasts poached in broth and allowed to cool in the broth. Tehn dice or shredd to get bite sized peices.
1 small Granny Smith apple diced – do core it but can leave the peal on or not – your choice.  Be sure put the pieces in some lemon juice to prevent turning dark
½ of red onion – I prefer this grated but a small dice will work too
¼ cup of Red Seedless Grapes – sliced in half - I use Red Flame
¼ - ½ cup of plain nonfat yogurt
1 tespoon honey or to taste

Mix all of this and then add salt to taste – about ½ teaspoon to start.

You can also use any of the following to add a little different taste

1 Teaspoon Madras Curry
¼ cup diced pecans
½ teaspoon Dijon Mustard

I would not add the mustard if you add the curry.  This is very good served with Toast points, crackers or as a lettuce wrap.
