Tzatziki Chicken Salad

Tzatziki Chicken Salad ~ Alltime favorite low-fat Chicken Salad made quickly and easily

There is nothing better than a quick salad for lunch. I used to make a bowl of salad the night before when I used to work full time and if there was a salad dressing which might have made the salad ingredients go soggy, I always included the dressing separately in a smaller {tiny really!} bowl and stacked it on top of my salad until such time I was ready to have lunch.

This Tzatziki Chicken Salad is even better as everything gets mixed together and it stays good for a couple of days in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

I usually make this salad when we have had Chicken the night before as it is a great way to use any leftover Chicken.

Served with the Lavash Crackers this is a perfect early light dinner for us. Not rich at all, but definitely very filling.



1/4 cup Red Onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup English Cucumber, chopped
1 t Garlic, crushed
2 t Fresh Dill, finely chopped
Pinch Salt
1/4 t Black Pepper
2/3 cup Fat-Free Plain Yoghurt
1 TB Lemon Juice

 2 cups Chicken, cooked and cubed


1.) Mix all the ingredients except the Chicken.
2.) Add Chicken and gently stir through.

Serve with Crackers, Wholewheat Bread or in Pitas.   {I served ours with Lavash Crackers }

  1. mmm I think I would just spoon it into tortilla's or pita and eat it as a wrap YUM!!

  2. This looks so delicious Linda. I love the make-ahead ability with this recipe too, and its a smart way to use up leftover chicken. Thanks for sharing. Pinning!

  3. Hi, Linda - this looks so delicious! So fresh and yummy; I want some now. Thanks so much for linking at On Display Thursday. I am so glad you stopped by!

  4. Yum - I love tzatziki! Great idea. I always add some feta in with my tzatziki though, so would probably add it to the chicken salad. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. This looks fantastic, Linda! I love chicken with tzatziki sauce but never thought to make it as a chicken salad. Such a good idea! -Amy

  6. What a great idea to use tzatziki in chicken salad instead of mayo. Love it! Stopping by from Happiness is Homemade, thanks for sharing!

  7. Great idea. I love tzatziki and I love using greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise in many recipes. I don't know why I haven't thought of this but I'm glad you did. I will definitely try this soon. It would be delish in a pita.

  8. I never would have thought to use tzatziki in chicken salad. Great idea, Linda! Thank you for sharing.

  11. I want to eat the chicken salad because of the cucumbers, but that bread in the background (lavash crackers) looks amazing!!

  12. Sounds wonderful! I love tzatziki, yum!

  13. Sounds Delicious! Approximately how many will this recipe serve? I would like to make this for a greek themed Bunco. Im guessing I would need to triple or quadruple this recipe.Thank you, Brenda
