Skinny Chicken Salad...Yum

I wanted to share with you pictures of my garden. As my veggies come in I will share with you some of my favorite recipes that incorporates the tasty garden delights!

If you have never had a garden before give it a try, it's fun and so satisfying when you get to eat that first tomato, bean or pepper. Make sure you start with good organic compost or garden soil!

Here is Tuesday's Recipe! 

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest. It is very close to the way I have made chicken salad for years so I had to check it out. The biggest difference is adding Greek Yogurt instead of the mayo and the cranberries. It's yummy!
