No-Mayo Chicken Salad

Mayonnaise is the bane of lots of people following a low-fat and low-calorie diet. After all, one tablespoon of mayonnaise comes with a whopping 100 calories! That’s too much if you’re following, say, a strict 1200-calorie daily intake, and yet too little if you’re making chicken salad. To solve that dilemma, here’s a recipe for no-mayo chicken salad that’s still so creamy it will rock your socks off.

What’s the secret behind this no-mayo chicken salad? It’s two ingredients, actually: avocado and Greek yogurt. Just make your chicken salad as you usually would, only substitute a mashed avocado and Greek yogurt mixture for mayo. The result would be just as creamy as, and maybe a lot tastier than, chicken salad with mayo in it. This awesome recipe is from Tammy of Organize Yourself Skinny.

Ingredients

1 ripe avocado, removed from skin
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ teaspoon garlic granulated garlic
½ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ ground pepper
2 cups finely chopped or shredded cooked chicken
½ red onion, chopped
1 small lime

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl mash together avocado and greek yogurt until smooth.
  2. Stir in garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Add chicken and red onion to avocado mixture and stir until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Squeeze in half the juice from the lime. Give it a taste, squeeze in the rest of the lime if needed. I used all of the lime juice.
  5. Serve in a wrap, in a pita, or anyway you typically enjoy chicken salad.
