Coming off of a long holiday weekend, I thought it might be nice to share a light and healthy recipe to get you through the week.I'm a big fan of chicken salad, whether it's in between two slices of bread, served on crackers, or topped on a bed of lettuce. Unfortunately most chicken salad isn't exactly figure friendly, but the recipe I have for you today is. Ditch the mayo for greek yogurt and add avocado for extra creaminess. The best part about this recipe, is you really can't screw it up. You can add as little or as much of each ingredient to suit your preference. I have been making a big bowl of it for lunches, which lasts me through the work week.
