Roasted Chicken Salad with Almonds & Cherries

Roasted Chicken Salad with Almonds & Cherries


  • 2 cups cubed or shredded cooked chicken (removing the meat from a rotisserie chicken works well)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, roasted
  • 1/3 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries or cherry-flavored dried cranberries, roughly chopped
  • 1 (6-ounce) container low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste



Place chicken in a medium-sized bowl. Add almonds, celery and dried cherries. In a small bowl, stir together yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, poultry seasoning and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add to chicken mixture and toss gently. Serve.
