Yogurt Chicken Salad Without Mayo

  • Author: Howard Land
  • Total Time: 10 minutes


This creamy chicken salad is so good. It’s made with no mayonnaise whatsoever. I use yogurt instead of mayo and it comes out creamy, dreamy and absolutely delicious.



½ cup plain whole milk Stonyfield yogurt

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper

2 ½ cups diced chicken breast

½ cup finely chopped green apple

¼ cup finely chopped celery

¼ cup finely chopped green onion both light and dark green parts

8 butter lettuce cups or 8 slices of whole wheat bread for serving


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt, lemon juice, dill, dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper. Fold in the diced chicken, apple, celery, and green onions. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. To serve, scoop a ¼ – ½ cup of the chicken salad into the center of a lettuce cup or spread on top of a slice of bread.


Tip: Make this chicken apple salad recipe at least an hour in advance to give the flavors time to meld.
