Tzatziki Chicken Salad Recipe

A simple chicken salad recipe using Greek yogurt instead of mayo and with all of the traditional tzatziki flavors.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt (I used whole milk Greek yogurt)
  • 1/4 cup herbs, chopped (combo of mint, basil, parsley and dill)
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Finely dice the half cucumber and sprinkle with salt, then place in a colander over the sink to let the juices drain while you make the rest of the salad.
  2. In a bowl mix together the shredded chicken, yogurt, herbs, lemon juice, and minced garlic.
  3. Add in the cucumber.
  4. Serve over greens or in a sandwich. Top with feta cheese or extra cucumbers and herbs.
Notes
For a vegetarian version try adding lentils instead of the chicken.
