Dietitian's Tip: 

This great recipe incorporates some of the main DASH foods (low-fat dairy, colorful fruits and vegetables, and nuts), making it a great and wholesome choice. If you can’t find fresh, look for frozen mangoes. They keep well in the freezer and are still high in nutrients. And if you don’t like nuts, consider adding seeds to still give this recipe a nice crunch but still incorporate healthy fats. For a different eating experience, use green lettuce leaves to make lettuce wraps. 

Ingredients: 

2 ½ cups (½ -inch pieces) grilled skinless, boneless chicken breasts
¾ cup plain, nonfat yogurt
1 teaspoon curry
¼ cup cubed mango
1 cup dried, sweetened cranberries
¼ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup Mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes 

Preparation: 

1. In a medium bowl, blend yogurt and curry with a whisk. Stir in chicken, mango, cranberries, walnuts and Mozzarella cheese.

2. Mix well and serve on lettuce leaves if desired.
