Before we left Tulsa, we ate lunch in Utica Square. It was a restaurant that I hadn't been to very much and I ended up ordering a chicken salad sandwich. I was looking forward to getting a creamy maybe sweet chicken salad on some delicious bread. Unfortunately, it did not come out as I had hoped. Although it wasn't terribly bad, it wasn't the southern chicken salad that I had hoped for...and half of the sandwich consisted of lettuce. Bummer!
So, I decided that I would try to make my own creamy but healthy chicken salad.
My first attempt went pretty well. I used all greek yogurt (no mayonnaise, because mayonnaise kind of scares me), lemon juice, apples, almonds and roasted chicken for flavor.
It turned out pretty well. I think maybe next time, I might add some celery or red onion for more flavor.
Well, I'm trekking to New York for the first time this weekend, so I hope to come back with some great culinary finds to share!
