Pineapple Chicken Salad

by Melissa on October 26, 2008

For my sister-in-law’s baby shower, I volunteered to make chicken salad with this recipe in mind. After reading Annie’s rave reviews about it, I knew it would be perfect. I will admit, pineapple in chicken salad sounded a little odd to me the first time I read it, but the flavors in this recipe blend together perfectly. I would highly recommend this next time you are looking for a new chicken salad recipe.

Pineapple Chicken Salad

  • 2 1/2 cups cooked chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup matchstick cut carrots
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 8-oz. can pineapple tidbits or crushed pineapple, drained 

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Serve on rolls, croissants, or in pita pockets with romaine lettuce.

Wow! It looks delicious. I definitely want to try this, but you want to make the pineapple is organic. Here’s why http://www.newrinkles.com/index.php/archive/did-you-know-pineapple/
