Chicken Salad with Chia or Poppy Seed Dressing

It is that time of year to enjoy nice Summer Salads.  I made this last week and my family loved it. It was easy to put together. It was fun to make a dressing  that was not high in calories. I used chia instead of poppy seeds. Chia seeds work as a nice thickener in dressing.

2 C grilled chicken or cooked chopped small pieces
1/2 C chopped up carrots
1/4 to 1/2 purple onion chopped in small pieces
1 cucumber chopped
4 C Spring salad mix or other greens
 *sprinkle bacon pieces on top if desired
1 C plain yogurt
2 to 3 T honey or sweetener
2 to 2 1/2 T lemon juice
1 to 2 tsp chia seed (or poppy)

1. Toss all the ingredients in together except the bacon. 
2. Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing together. 
3. Just prior to serving. Pour on the dressing. and toss the bacon on top if desired.
