Grapefruit Chicken Salad

05 Jan

Happy New Year!!

Like many of you, my New Year Resolution is to stop putting off getting into better shape. I am healthy and my family is healthy as far as the foods we eat here at home, but we are lacking in restaurant restraint and in scheduling time to exercise. Every resolution will fail if you do not have a plan, so I am starting the process by making a plan.

Grapefruit is an excellent source of vitamin C. It is also a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, potassium, folate, and vitamin B5. Grapefruit also contains phytochemicals including liminoids and lycopene. These vitamins are what I need to help boost my metabolism and to help give me the energy I need for being active all day long. I’m going to start trying new recipes that include this fresh fruit and I’ll be sharing them with you as I go.

Here is a low-calorie citrus  chicken dish. Enjoy!

 

 

  • 1 1/2 cups grapefruit segments; cut into bite- sized pieces
  • 2 cups Diced cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup Chopped celery
  • 1 Minced scallion
  • 1/4 cup Reduced-calorie mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Minced fresh parsley

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Serve on a bed of salad greens. (Serves 3 to 4.)
