Buffalo Chicken Salad

25 Feb

When I began on my quest for a healthier lifestyle I had to make significant number of changes to my eating and cooking habits.  One of these habits that have been formed is the elimination of “white condiments” (mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, etc.).  In place of these items I now substitute w/ Greek yogurt not only will it take on the taste of anything it is paired with but it also provides a significant number of health benefits included but not limited to 24 grams of protein per cup, YES I SAID 24 GRAMS!!
