To make this easy, healthy blueberry chicken salad, you’ll need

  • ½ cup of thinly vertically sliced red onion
  • 1/3 cup of diced celery
  • ¼ cup of torn fresh basil
  • 12 ounces of shredded, skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken
  • ½ teaspoon of kosher salt, divided
  • ½ cup of plain reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 ½ tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 cups of fresh blueberries
  • 1 package of baby arugula
  • 2 teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper


Combine the onion, celery, basil, and chicken in a medium bowl, and sprinkle the mix with ¼ teaspoon of salt.

Then combine the yogurt, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and honey in a small bowl, and stir it well with a whisk.

Add the yogurt mixture to the chicken mixture, and toss it well so it coats before gently stirring in the blueberries.

Place the arugula, 1 ½ tablespoons of lemon juice, oil, ¼ teaspoon of salt, and pepper in a bowl, and again, toss well to coat.

Divide the arugula mixture evenly among 6 plates, and top each serving with about ¾ cup of chicken mixture.
