Hawaiian Chicken Salad

May 23, 2009

For those of you in my group on Wednesday, I promised to post the link here of the Hawaiian Chicken Salad since we ran out of hard copies! I love this recipe – the juice from the pineapple means you use very minimal mayo for the whole dish! This is really yummy served on top of bibb lettuce, or on a toasted piece of whole wheat bread. It’s also a great dish to take to a party, since no one is really going to guess it’s low cal. See below & enjoy!
