CHICKEN WALDORF SALAD

I absolutely love the flavor of this salad!  I looked through several online recipes and chose to use a mixture of what I read to make my very own version, and I'm proud to say it turned out delish!
I made it earlier in the day and refrigerated it until dinner time, and I literally couldn't wait for the dinner hour to arrive.....fortunately, I made a large batch so I'm looking forward to another helping today!

INGREDIENTS:

1 apple, cut into bite size pieces (your choice, I went with Honeycrisp)
½ cup red seedless grapes, halved
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup chopped celery
¼ cup sliced almonds (I used the pre-packaged kind found in the produce aisle)
8-10 oz. chicken breast, pre-cooked (I used a rotisserie chicken from the deli for added flavor)
¼ cup chopped red onion
*½ cup plain Greek yogurt
*¼ cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. honey
salt and pepper

* choose low-fat or non-fat versions to "lighten" it up even further

DIRECTIONS: 

1.  Dice or pull apart the chicken breast.
2.  Combine yogurt, mayo, mustard, honey, salt and pepper and mix well.
3.  Add chicken, grapes, apples, cranberries, celery, almond and onion to a large bowl.  Pour the dressing over and mix well.
4.  Add a few almonds just before serving for garnish.

Enjoy over romaine lettuce, in a tortilla wrap or as a sandwich!
