Light and Creamy Pesto Chicken Salad

Whenever you have leftover chicken, make chicken salad.  I had some leftover chicken after making chicken souvlaki (see Chicken Souvlaki post) so I combined it with mayo, plain yogurt, a tablespoon of jarred pesto and a sprinkle of scallions. You can make chicken salad in a multitude of ways, mixing and matching most vegetables and dressings.  Another favorite is to use the same mayo/yogurt base (1/2 yogurt, 1/2 mayo) but instead of pesto, add chopped walnuts, grapes, celery and scallions. For a lighter twist, instead of using bread to make a sandwich, place chicken salad on lettuce leaves to make lettuce wraps.
