Cherry Chicken Salad

This is my summertime take on chicken salad.  I love prepping a big batch of chicken salad on Sunday to snack on throughout the week. I decided to mix it up a little bit this time, so I added tart dried cherries to the mix and YUM. It was the perfect addition! I also used my favorite combination of paleo mayo and greek yogurt, but feel free to use one or the other and add as little/much as you’d like. I like using greek yogurt because not only does it add more protein, it makes it nice and creamy without having too strong of a mayo flavor.

I decided to serve in Belgium endive cups, but you could also serve with a bed of mixed greens, as a sandwich, wrap, with crackers, or simply eat by the spoonful! Enjoy!!
