Greek Chicken Salad
My family loves this dish. Use light mayonnaise and this is a healthy salad. Even if you or your family are not garlic lovers, I'd advise that you use the full measurement of garlic and the tablespoon of oregano for the proper flavoring. I receive nothing but raves when I serve this salad.
