Prepare this salad ahead of time and serve chilled, if you like. Spoon into avocado halves and serve with whole wheat crackers for a refreshing lunch or dinner.


1 cup low-fat cottage cheese

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon honey

2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt

2 tablespoons nonfat milk

Salt and pepper to taste

1 pound cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast, chopped

3/4 cup finely chopped celery

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1 granny smith apple, cored, peeled and chopped


Put cottage cheese, lemon juice, mustard, honey, yogurt, milk, salt and pepper into the blender and purée until smooth; set aside. Put chicken, celery, onions and apples into a large bowl. Pour over cottage cheese mixture and stir gently to coat. Serve immediately or cover and chill until ready to serve.

Serves 4 to 6
