Delicious Chicken Salad with Yogurt

I had this for dinner this week. It tasted so good. I love chicken salad but, don't love to eat all the mayo that is usually in it. So this is a recipe that uses no mayo at all. I love the kick the lemon adds to it as well. I saved calories by serving it on lettuce.It was a treat to have leftovers for lunch the next day. Delish! I hope that you are doing something fun this weekend. This is a wonderful time of year enjoy it!

1 C of cooked chicken chopped in small pieces
1/2 C green onion chopped up
1 green apple diced up
1 C of red grapes chopped in half
1/4 C of unsalted cashew pieces or nut of your choosing
3/4 C celery chopped into pieces
1/2 C plain low fat yogurt
juice from 1 lemon
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Romaine lettuce to serve it on.

Directions: Serves 4
1. Place the first 6 ingredients into the bowl.
2. In a small bowl mix the yogurt, lemon juice and garlic powder together.
3. Pour over the salad and stir in. Add salt and pepper to your taste preference.
4, Scoop on to lettuce leaves and serve.
