  • 12 small baby potatoes, quartered
  • 1 large apple, cored and sliced
  • 15ml fresh lemon juice
  • 1 packet assorted lettuce leaves, torn into pieces (100g)
  • 2 smoked chicken breasts, sliced (220g)
  • 30ml cashew nuts (2T) or 10 pecan nut halves
  • 1 bunch chives, chopped (10g)
  • 60ml fat reduced mayonnaise (1/4 cup)
  • 60ml fat free or low-fat milk or yoghurt (1/4 cup)
  • Freshly ground black pepper

How to make it:

  1. Cook the baby potatoes while preparing the rest of the salad
  2. In a flat dish, cover the sliced apples with the lemon juice to prevent discoloration
  3. In a salad bowl or platter, arrange the lettuce leaves, chicken and apple slices
  4. Add the baby potatoes (they can still be warm) and toss lightly
  5. Sprinkle the nuts and chives on top
  6. Mix the mayonnaise and yoghurt to form a thick sauce and serve the chicken salad

Red apples look particularly attractive in this lovely summer lunch

If you prefer a thinner dressing, use milk instead of yoghurt with the mayonnaise


Replace the apple with another fruit, such as peach, pear etc.
