GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn--Traditional chicken salad gets a new look and is loaded with flavor and not the unnecessary fat. Using Greek yogurt and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce makes this quick chicken salad a satisfying dish and you will know that your kids are eating something that's good for them.
Kirsten Shabaz, the Fresh Foods Educator at Valley Natural Foods, who leads the co-op's fresh foods demo program joined us on KARE News@4 to serve up the salad and to tell us about an upcoming event.
