Skinny Ranch Chicken Salad

I’m about to dive into a bowl of my Skinny Ranch Chicken Salad – it’s crunchy, slightly spicy and extra creamy, even though it’s mayo-free!

It took me awhile to get on the chicken salad bandwagon… I blame the texture and some early childhood exposure to some bad mayonnaise. I am still recovering 😂

But when I figured out I didn’t have to use mayo I became a chicken salad lover! I love making a big batch and mixing it up with either avocado, buffalo sauce or skinny ranch, like here!

To make the skinny ranch I combined one organic ranch dressing packet with 1 cup @fage Greek 2% yogurt and a few tablespoons of plain almond milk (starting with two and adding more to thin). Stir stir stir and you have yourself perfectly seasoned ranch!
