Recipe

This Healthy Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad will quickly become your favorite lunch time meal and with about 200 calories per serving, it's so much better for you than traditional mayo heavy chicken salad.

So I have a friend who is completely obsessed with this cranberry almond chicken salad that she buys in Costco religiously. She eats it almost daily for lunch and she has served it at every party she has ever had. The only problem is that her chicken salad habit is actually pretty expensive and since she is trying to make more food at home, we set out one weekend to recreate her favorite chicken salad. After a few attempts, we came up with a version we actually like more than the version she usually bought. With cooked chicken breast, dried cranberries, celery, sliced almonds, and a simple yogurt based dressing - it's really delicious. She likes it with a bit of honey to sweeten it up (although I prefer it without) and she sometimes switches out the cranberries for sliced red grapes. Yum.
