by / ⠀Main dishes Recipes Sandwiches / November 7, 2012

This chicken salad sandwich is a perfect lunch or dinner option that can be made in just 10 minutes! Plus, it’s lightened up by using Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. From the plump grapes and fresh apples to the sweet cranberries, you won’t even miss the mayo!

  • 1/2 cup diced red onion

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Ciabatta bread, toasted, for serving


1. In a large bowl, combine chicken, red onion, apple, grapes, dried cranberries or currants, sliced almonds, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste.

2. Serve sandwiches on ciabatta bread with chicken salad mixture.

Note: You can also serve this over baby spinach for a delicious lunch salad!

    Would like to know if you can substitute the Yogurt with something else. Yogurt makes me ill. I would love to know because this recipe sounds delicious.

      Hi Trina! For a cream-less recipe you could nix the yogurt entirely. Or you could try substituting for 1/3 to 1/2 cup light sour cream. Hope that helps!

    Good Salad! I was nervous about using the yogurt (I used Greek) and it was actually pretty good! I also used twice as much apples

    I have made this several times. I mixed up different apples (granny and red delicious are my fav) and use both red and green grapes. However I omit the almonds. This is an awesome go to recipe for some yummy fast and healthy lunch sandwich/salad/on crackers/ just with a fork!
