Curried Chicken Salad

This is a favorite of mine, especially in the summer heat. I like to use rotisserie chicken (skin removed) - there is a great variety of flavors, and you don't have to heat up the kitchen to use it. The combination of grapes, carrots and celery make it a refreshing and tasty lunch. If you like, add a tablespoon of chopped pecans. I adapted this recipe from a Weight Watchers cookbook.

Curried Chicken Salad with Grapes

2 c. shredded cooked skinless chicken breast
20 small seedless grapes, halved
1 carrot, coarsely grated
1/2 celery stalk, thinly sliced
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 onion, grated
1/4 - 1/2 c. plain fat-free Greek-style yogurt
1/4 c. reduced-fat Miracle Whip
1 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
4 c. mesclun salad greens

Combine chicken, grapes, carrot, celery, parsley, and lemon juice in medium bowl.Combine onion, yogurt, curry powder, salt, and pepper in small bowl. Pour over the chicken mixture and toss to combine. Divide mesclum among 4 salad plates and top with chicken salad. Serves 4.
