Healthier Waldorf Salad



  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt (non-fat, low-fat, or full-fat)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped, fresh apple (leave the skins on)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 4 cups chopped crunchy lettuce (such as Romaine)
  • 1 chicken breast, grilled, cut into slices, and cooled
  • 1/2 cup sliced red grapes
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery ribs
  • 1/2 large apple, chopped
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, toasted in a 350-degree oven for 5-7 minutes and cooled

The addition of yogurt to this Healthier Waldorf Salad ups the protein and cuts the fat, but doesn't sacrifice flavor.
