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!

The pear gave the salad an amazing fruity taste… I love the sweet and salty combo.

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!

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!

This looks fabulous! I love that you used Pear Greek Yogurt. I imagine that give such a nice sweet but tangy flavor to the salad. And Pine Nuts? Yum! Thanks for sharing!!

Heather @girlichef February 17, 2013 at 10:50 am

I love chicken salad, too…but I always use mayo. I’m definitely going to give greek yogurt a go next time – and love that you used pear (I love golden raisins and poppy seeds in mine)!

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 ;)

Now that sounds like an amazing combination! I have seen greek yogurt as a sub for may, but it never occurred to me to use a flavored variety! Holy Cow! Pear, chicken and pine nuts…GENIUS!

I have never tried Greek pita bread, but your combination of bread with chicken yogurt salad look tempting.

Reply

Lane @ Supper for a Steal February 18, 2013 at 10:15 am

I agree, Greek pita is the best! I love chicken salad, but I don’t really like mayo so when I make it I just use the tiniest amount to bind it all together. I will have to try with Greek yogurt.

Reply

Soni February 18, 2013 at 11:02 am

Ooh this looks delish!I also love sweet with salty and crunchy!Never tried Greek pita and will be looking for it now :)
