Rainbow Chicken Salad

I know we're all familiar with the term "Eat The Rainbow" when it comes to health and nutrition lately.  It's because of that reason that I came up with my recipe for Rainbow Chicken Salad.

This recipe is cool, refreshing and it's super tasty.  Not to mention that it's lower in calories and fat than other chicken salads I've run across over the years.  That's not to say the other chicken salads aren't good, they are.  It's just that when you're looking for a little healthier alternative, you might want to give mine a try.


1 Store-bought rotisserie chicken, skin removed and taken off the bone. Cut into bite-sized pieces.
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 medium purple onion, diced
1/2 large orange bell pepper, diced
1/2 large yellow bell pepper, diced
1 gala apple, peeled and diced
1 lime, zest and juice
1 4 ounce can of fire roasted chilies
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/4 cup light mayonaisse
1/4 cup light Greek yogurt
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

-In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and stir to combine well. 
-Taste and adjust with a bit more salt and pepper if needed.
-Refrigerate until ready to serve.

There you have it.  This quick, crunchy and healthy chicken salad comes together in no time and is enough to make a good 6-8 sandwiches.  You can serve this on some toasted whole wheat buns or what about inside some pita bread? Yummy!  Or, add a little lettuce and serve this as a salad...
