Mayo-Free Chicken Salad Recipe

No Mayonnaise Chicken Salad Sandwiches… what??!!

Yes… you won’t even notice the difference! My family actually has grown to prefer this recipe over your normal chicken salad recipe.

Growing up, my mom would always throw me little tea parties. This past Friday, a bunch of girls in my family decided to create our own tea room and it was such a special time! We had orange-lemon zest scones, herb & cheese biscuits, caprese salad, deviled eggs, and of course, chicken salad sandwiches. And the best part…. all the food was made without mayonnaise, butter, and was not highly saturated with salt. So in my world, that said, guilt-free & all-you-can-eat! 🙂

  • Combine all ingredients, except the chicken into a large bowl. Stir, until all ingredients are evenly distributed. 
  • Once the shredded chicken has cooled, add it into the yogurt mix, and stir.
