Transitioning to a healthy lifestyle doesn’t only include exercise and a good oral health routine. A diet high in fruits and veggies and low in sugar will help you maintain a healthy weight and avoid tooth decay. In honor of National Nutrition Month, try this chicken salad recipe for lunch this week.
It is easy to make with leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken. If you use rotisserie chicken, keep in mind that it’s salty and omit the salt in the dressing.
1/3 cup mayo
1/3 cup plain yogurt
2 tsp lemon juice
¼ tsp salt
3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
1 medium red apple, diced
1 cup halved red or green grapes
1 cup sliced celery
½ cup chopped walnuts
Whisk mayo, yogurt, lemon juice and salt together in a bowl. Add chicken, apple, grapes, celery and ¼ cup walnuts. Top with remaining ¼ cup walnuts and serve on sandwich bread, in pita pockets or wrapped in tortillas.
