Chicken Salad with Celery in Yogurt Dressing

Chicken Salad with Celery in Yogurt Dressing

This is one of my favorite salads from Turkish cuisine.  I love how the tender chicken breast pairs with crunchy celery, cucumber, and walnuts. I also love the fact that this salad is healthier than most of its mayonnaise laden cousins – the dressing here is good old plain yogurt, mixed, if desired, for a richer taste, with only a few tablespoonfuls of mayonnaise. Try this salad. You’ll love it.
