I love a creamy mayonnaise-based chicken salad. For this one I used a mixture of mayonnaise and Greek yogurt for plenty of creaminess and a little tang. I also added in a little fresh lemon juice and then mixed in lots of feta cheese, red onion, chopped cucumber, kalamata olives, and fresh dill.
It’s an easy to make chicken salad that is healthy and so flavorful.
To make this Greek Chicken Salad very quick and easy, I use the meat from a rotisserie chicken.
Tip- When you bring a rotisserie chicken home from the store, go ahead and remove the meat from the bones while it is warm. It will just fall right off. Then place it in a ziptop bag and refrigerate for later use.
