  • 2 red apples (such as Cameo apples)
  • 2 celery stalks (diced)
  • 1/4 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 16 lettuce leaves (bibb, romaine, green or red leaf)
  1. Cut apples in quarters; remove core and chop.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mix all ingredients, except lettuce.
  3. To serve, arrange lettuce on serving plates, top with apple and chicken salad.

Weekly menu planning tip:  When you're planning dinner with chicken, cook up extra chicken breast and refrigerate for later use in this salad. Serve with 8 ounces non-fat milk and one slice rustic whole grain bread.
