A delicious recipe for a skinny Waldorf salad with tender chicken, fresh vegetables and fruits and crunchy nuts. Covered with a yogurt based vinaigrette.
I had some chicken leftover from a meal and that was just not enough to make a meal for the five of us. And because it is still January I especially pay attention on healthy food, so I thought to make a lovely fresh and lean chicken salad with it.
The chicken I blanched in boiling water, so that he remained very juicy. Furthermore, I add celery and apple slices, pistachios and raisins mixed. Just like in a Waldorf salad, because this is really becoming a derivative. And not for nothing, for a Waldorf salad has just the right flavors brought together. Where you put a great dash of mayonnaise in the Waldorf salad, I used a vinaigrette with a yogurt base this time. Just a little lighter and just as tasty.
When my hubby and I were eating the salad for lunch, my youngest saw his chance. Mmm, was all he said, and at the end of the song, I had only half a salad left. So it became an extra skinny salad ;-), and it was approved anyway.
