Cranberry-Walnut Chicken Salad by Ashley

I know I know their are a million different chicken salad recipes and you probably have your favorite, but I think you should at least try this. My favorite is still my Mom's chicken salad, but this one is awesome also.


Ingredients:
4 cups of cubed cooked chicken
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 rib celery, finely diced
2-4 Tablespoons, finely minced shallot (don't freak out about the shallots, it is just like an onion. they are really good)
1 cup of dried cranberries
1 Granny Smith apple, chopped
1/3 cup canola mayo
2/3 cup low-fat Greek yogurt (Greek yogurt is super good for you and very creamy)
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons minced flat leaf parsley ( i didn't use this)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Adjust shallots and seasoning to taste. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Enjoy!!
