Remoulade Chicken Salad

Remoulade with anything…yum! After seeing a recipe for it with chicken salad in a mayo heavy sauce, I was inspired to come up with a light and healthy version using Greek yogurt. A great way to use leftover chicken and it tastes incredible!

Serves: 4
One of my favorite ways to make chicken salad! This recipe would also be great at a Southern-inspired brunch (you could serve it on small biscuits) or perfect for a picnic. Happy cooking!
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt – plain
  • 1/4 cup Sour cream – regular
  • 1 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 4 tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2-3 tbsp Dill pickle relish (see note)
  • 2 Scallions (green and white parts)
  • 1 Red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 1/2 cups Skinless, boneless chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 1/4 cup Pecans, chopped (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a food processor combine Greek yogurt, sour cream, mayonnaise, ketchup, Dijon mustard and dill pickle relish. Taste and adjust dill pickle relish amount if needed.
  2. Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in scallions, red bell pepper and shredded chicken. Add pecans if using.
  3. Enjoy on a bed of greens or the bread of your choice.
Notes
Dill pickle relish – In our house we love dill pickle relish, so I add 3 tablespoons when making this for my family. However, I understand not everyone loves it as much, so start with 2 tablespoons, taste and then add another tablespoon if you want a more pronounced pickle taste.
