Recipe: Broccoli-Bacon Chicken Salad

From EatingWell

In this healthy chicken salad recipe, a combo of mayonnaise and plain Greek yogurt makes up the lightened creamy dressing. Serve this main-dish twist on broccoli salad as an open-face sandwich on toasted bread or scoop it on top of fresh salad greens. For an even healthier option, use turkey bacon or vegetarian/vegan bacon.
