Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad #SundaySupper

Do you remember how I told you that I just didn’t care for Tuna Salad?  Well, I have a confession.  Chicken salad is a whole other story. I love Chicken Salad and could probably eat it every day of the week.  I love the kind that is made with grapes and almonds.  The kind that is sweet and savory at the same time.  Of course, I have realized that this kind of Chicken Salad, may not be so good to indulge every day of the week.  So I have been experimenting with Greek Yogurt instead of Mayo.  I am so excited that my experimenting has paid off.  I have found a Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad that may taste as good, if not better than the original.

My Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad is made with some of my favorite things.  Pear Greek Yogurt, sun-dried Tomatoes, Greek Onions, Sea Salt and oh my… Pine Nuts!  It is out of this world.  Sweet, Salty and Crunchy.  And if this wasn’t enough, I nestled the Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad in the middle of toasty Greek Pita Bread.  If you have never tried Greek Pita Bread, you must!  It is nothing like the traditional Pita Bread.  It is just the perfect match for the Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad.

    I am intrigued that you used a pear yogurt instead of plain. That never would have occurred to me, but I’ll be it lends just the perfect amount of sweetness to your chicken salad. Yum!

    Now I know how I can use up my sun dried tomatoes in a delicious way. Don’t know why this fellow chicken salad fan didn’t think of it before …I’m fascinated too by the use of pear greek yogurt.

    Thank you for the recipe, Isabel!

    Oh my goodness, a whole bunch of favorites all wrapped into one – this looks fabulous. I adore chicken salad and yours looks and sounds delicious.

    This sounds like a yummy recipe! I have been wanting to try using Greek yogurt in place of mayo/sour cream/etc. in a recipe…the pear yogurt is such a cool idea for this chicken salad!

    Oh Isabel, you have me salivating over your list of ingredients here. LOVE that you used pear yogurt (brilliant) and PINE NUTS!!! Be still my heart! I’ll bet this is a chicken salad I could eat every day too. Maybe even twice a day 😉

    ooh loving all the flavors in this salad. I have the pear yogurt that you used . What a great way to use it !! Pine nuts, sundried tomatoes .. yuuum! Can’t wait to try this as soon as I get sundried tomatoes & pine nuts.

    I am a fan of greek yogurt and eat it almost every morning for breakfast. Now, adding it to chicken salad sounds just perfect! What a great recipe :)

    I love the pear-flavored yogurt here…what a nice subtle sweetness it must add! I too adore chicken salad and love to make mine with Greek yogurt too. It’s one of my favorite secret ingredients for lower-fat food that’s still rich and creamy!

  9. says

    I adore chicken salad, too…and love the addition of pear yogurt! It’s been way to long since I’ve made a batch and your version looks scrumptious :)
