- 1/3 cup grapes, cut in half
- 2 cups leftover roasted chicken, chopped into ½–inch pieces
- 4 cups romaine lettuce, coarsely chopped
Equipment and supplies:
- Mixing bowl
- Knife for chopping
- Bowls for serving
What to do:
- In a large bowl, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, celery, red onion, grapes, and chicken.
- Mix gently until everything is well coated in dressing.
- Divide lettuce between four bowls.
