Serves: About 16 sliders
Ingredients
For the dressing:
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (I used 0%)
  • ½ cup low fat mayo
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
For the salad:
  • 4 cups cooked chicken breast, cubed*
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • ½ cup chopped Blue Diamond Low Sodium Almonds
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
For the sliders:
  • 16 slider rolls
  • lettuce leaves, for serving (optional)
Instructions
Prepare the dressing:
  1. Whisk together the Greek yogurt, mayo, honey, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste in a small bowl.
Prepare the salad:
  1. Place the chicken, celery, almonds, dried cranberries, and rosemary in large bowl. Add the desired amount of dressing and toss gently to coat.
Assemble the sliders:
  1. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom of each slider roll and top with the chicken salad. Place the top half over the chicken salad and secure with toothpicks. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
*I used leftover grilled chicken breast for the chicken salad. Rotisserie chicken would be a great way to save time also, or simply grill or bake 1 lb. of chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper for 8-10 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
