Blue Berry Chicken Salad

2 C fresh blueberries 2 C cubed cooked chicken breast ¾ C chopped celery ½ C diced sweet red pepper ½ C thinly sliced green onions 1 carton (6 oz.) lemon yogurt 3 Tbs. mayonnaise ½ tsp. Salt Set aside a few blueberries for garnish. In a large bowl, gently combine the chicken, celery, red pepper, onions and remaining blueberries. Combine the yogurt, mayonnaise and salt; drizzle over chicken mixture and gently toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Top with reserved blueberries. Great on a Salad or as a sandwich. This recipe was great, perfect for a girly lunch. It was also great because I could use leftover grilled chicken! I left out the red pepper for no other reason then I just forgot to get one at store. I had my mom over for lunch and we whipped this up in no time at all. We opted to have it on toasted rye bread. YUMMY! The best part of this recipe was it got me thinking. I wonder if something like "Orange Chicken Salad" could be made. I'm so going to try making chicken salad with : Teriyaki Chicken, Orange yogurt, pineapple chunks, toasted cashews, and green onion. I"ll let you know how it goes.

Interesting. I would have kinda thought the blueberries would be weird in a chicken salad...but maybe I'll have to be adventurous!

This is so intriguing! Nobody but me eats chicken salad in my house, but I might have to make this anyway. :)
