I’ve always loved chicken salad but most recipes are loaded with calories so I set out to create my own skinny version which is easier to make and has a lot less calories than a regular chicken salad. I substituted the mayo for a combination of greek yogurt and fat free mayonnaise and used Oscar Mayer Selects Natural Smoked Turkey cold cuts instead of chicken which added flavor and cut preparation time in half! I gave the recipe a personal touch and lots of flavor by adding fresh mango and a dash of tajín seasoning. I served the salad in ripe Hass avocados for the ultimate wholesome lunch!
