This Apple and Cranberry Chicken Salad Recipe is SO delicious! I actually prefer to serve it chilled and it lasts great in the refrigerator for up to 3 days so it’s the perfect make-ahead appetizer or salad to any party.
Of course, this is also makes a perfect addition to your Weight Watchers lunch. Serve with raw veggies, top cucumbers with the chicken salad or use lettuce to make chicken salad “boats.”
The recipe as is comes in at 4 WW Blue Points, but you can reduce it a bit more by using fewer dried cranberries and fat free greek yogurt.
Personally, I like having a bit more flavor from the low-fat mayo and yogurt, but if you want to reduce your points a bit more you can make some adjustments without losing too much in taste.
I went with the classic flavor combo and added a teaspoon of mustard to add an extra bit of flavor. if you are a fan of spicy, feel free to add some hot sauce to the mix, it’s also delicious!
I used a combination of low-fat yogurt and low-fat mayonnaise to achieve that creaminess that we love with less calories and fat.
