Cranberry-Almond Chicken Salad


This chicken salad is so amazing youd never peg it as "light," but it has less than half the calories—and less than a third of the fat!—of the traditional type. The secret? I swap in light vegan (eggless) mayo for the regular kind, and I use a lot less of it. Plus, the dried cranberries add a sweet-and-tangy flavor boost. Just combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix well, then add salt and pepper to taste. You can spread it between two slices of whole-grain bread, but I love to eat it solo.
