Summer Style Chicken Salad

Summer Style Chicken Salad
I like chicken salad especially in the summer. Chicken salad can have the tendency to be either heavy or fattening depending on the mix ins. Chicken salad is traditionally mayo based and served on bread. I decided to lighten it up by making most of the mix Greek yogurt and making the filling fresh and vibrant to stand up to the summer sun.
I added dried cranberries,grapes,lemon and tarragon. What an amazing salad! The zing of the yogurt adds a great flavor to the chicken salad.You can add whatever toppings you like if these don't strike your fancy!Crunchy apples would be a great addition. Maybe even some avocado! Ok I am getting carried away.
I served this on a bed of Boston Bibb lettuce to make it light ( hey it is swimsuit season after all.) I ate this chicken salad all week and it is great on bread also. So if you need the carbs, for god's sake eat the carbs
