Ready in: 20minutes
1/2cupplain fat free Greek yogurt
1/4cupmayonnaise(I used full fat for richer flavor)
2tspfresh lemon juice
2tbspthinly sliced green onions
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3cupsdiced cooked and chilled chicken breast
6slicesbacon, cooked and chopped
1 1/2cupsgrape tomatoes, halved
1medium avocado(fairly firm but ripe), diced
Romaine lettuce leaves, for serving
In a medium mixing bowl stir together Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, green onions, parsley while seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
Add chicken, bacon, tomatoes and celery to a large mixing bowl (if you want some of the ingredients to show through set some aside to sprinkle over the top of the salad before serving). Add in the dressing mixture and toss to coat. Gently toss in avocado. Serve over lettuce leaves (or in bread slices).
*I didn't add celery the first time I made it which is why it isn't pictured but the second time I decided to try it and I like it much better with the celery. I like the crunch it adds.
