No Mayo Chicken Salad– A Healthy Dish!

Mayo Free Chicken Salad Recipe

What? Chicken Salad without mayo– that’s right!  This Mayo-FREE chicken salad recipe is AH-MA-ZING!!!

I LOVE chicken salad in the Summer! Chicken salad and egg salad are like iconic Summer dishes for me– check out my Nana’s Old Fashioned Egg Salad Recipe.  My mom makes a delicious chicken salad that our friends and family go nuts over and are constantly asking her to make it.  But, the problem is, it’s packed with high calorie- high fat mayonnaise.  So I wanted to come up with a chicken salad recipe that is just as delicious as mom’s but without all that mayo!
