Sterling's sister came to a family get together with this salad and I have been hooked ever since. It's healthy, it's colorful, it's spicy and it's delicious. The dressing is low fat and amazing. Thanks Melissa!

This is my healthy chicken salad recipe! It turned out great and it is very quick and easy to make. You can use leftover chicken in this recipe, but since I've been trying to use up a few of our food storage items, I used Costco's canned chicken which worked great!
This is a great recipe when you have that chicken salad craving, but you don't want the calories.
Healthy Curried Chicken Salad.
1 can kirkland brand canned chicken or 1-2 leftover chicken breasts
2 Tbsp. Mayonnaise (I used Kraft Olive Oil mayo)
2 Tbsp. plain greek yogurt
1/4 tsp mustard powder
1/8 to 1/4 tsp. curry powder
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
2 green onions
1/2 apple (gala or pink lady)
1/4 cup cabbage (I used the already shredded with carrots)
Salt and pepper
1/8 cup cashews (optional)
Mix mayo, greek yogurt and spices in bowl. In separate bowl combine chicken and cut up onions, apple, cabbage and cashews. Combine yogurt mixture with chicken mixture and serve on your favorite healthy bread.
This is my new favorite places. We don't like going to get burgers or fast food very often, so we like to have our list of slightly healthier options. This place is great and the atmosphere is divine. Their food not only tastes great, but it's culinary art. I had to look at everything that everyone else was getting. I've never been so impressed and involved with how food was put on a plate. Their sweet potato fries are great and I had the grilled balsamic chicken panini. We both highly recommend this place.
