For a waldorf chicken salad recipe that you can actually feel good about serving to guests, try this Holiday Chicken Waldorf Salad recipe from Rocky Barragan. No matter the occasion, this classic waldorf salad is a universal delight. This dish keeps things light by using Greek yogurt and reduced fat may in the waldorf salad dressing.
  Walnuts 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Dried cranberries 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Seedless grapes 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Celery 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chicken strips 6 Ounce (Cooked)
  Apples 2
  Lemon 1
  Greek yogurt 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Light mayonnaise 1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs)
  Agave nectar 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Sea salt To Taste
  Black pepper To Taste

Let's start with the chopping and the dicing! Cut your grapes in half lengthwise. Chop up your celery fairly thin. Dice your apples. Chop up your dried cranberries.

Place all of your chopped ingredients in a salad bowl. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon onto the ingredients in the bowl to prevent your apples from browning.

Next heat up a small skillet and place in your walnuts to toast. You'll know when they're ready when you're able to start smelling their fragrance. Once they are ready chop them up and set them aside.

Chop up your cooked chicken strips into small pieces.

Let's move onto the dressing. Combine your Greek yogurt, lite mayonnaise, blue agave sweetener and pepper in measuring cup and mix well.

Now let's assemble the salad! Drop the rest of your remaining ingredients into your salad bowl and dollop a couple of tablespoons of your dressing on top. Mix together well. Serve and enjoy!
