Recipe #42: Southwest Chicken Salad

Healthy, hearty, and easy! After Nick's reaction (an enthusiastic "MMM!!" after his first bite), I know I'll be making this one again... (My only change was using sour cream instead of yogurt because I didn't have any of the yogurt...)

2 cups chopped or sliced cooked skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup black beans, drained
1/2 cup sweet corn, drained if canned or thawed if frozen
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain, non-fat yogurt
1 tsp lime juice
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 cup chopped red pepper


In a bowl, blend mayonnaise, yogurt, lime juice and cumin. In another bowl, combine chicken, pepper, black beans, sweet corn, red onion and tomato. Stir in dressing. Option to serve on a bed of spinach or lettuce leaves.

Serves 4.
