Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad

I love chicken salad, but all that mayonnaise isn’t exactly healthy. So I decided to try to find a way to lighten it up. This chicken salad uses Greek yogurt instead of mayo. It gives the same consistency, but it is rather sweet, so I played up that aspect by adding apples, raisins and pecans. I ate it in a whole grain pita to keep with the healthy trend.
