Tropical Chicken Salad

Tropical Chicken Salad

Serves 4

Yogurt Mayonnaise Ingredients

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup EasiYo Natural Yogurt
  • salt & pepper to taste

Salad Ingredients

  • 1 medium cooked chicken, meat removed, skinned and diced
  • 2 chopped tomatoes
  • 1 mango, peeled and sliced
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, freshly grated
  • 2 bunches bok choy, separated and washed
  • coriander leaves to garnish (optional)

Method - Yogurt Mayonnaise

Place the egg yolks in a mixing bowl with the mustard and salt and pepper. Work to a smooth paste using a whisk or an electric beater (you can also use a food processor).

Add the lemon juice and continue mixing until the texture is smooth again.

If using a food processor or electric beater, keep the motor running and very slowly add 1/2 cup of the oil in a thin steady stream.  If using a whisk add the oil drop by drop.

Blend in the yogurt, 1 tablespoon at a time, and alternate with the remainder of the oil, ensuring each addition has been absorbed before adding more.

Adjust seasoning to taste. Chill mixture thoroughly before serving.

    Method - Salad

    Combine chicken, tomatoes, mango, spring onion and grated ginger with the Yogurt Mayonnaise in a large bowl and gently toss.

    Line a salad bowl or platter with the bok choy leaves, then pile the salad on top.

    Garnish with the coriander leaves if using.
