Ingredients:

Red Onion Chopped - 1 cup (Cut onions and wash them thoroughly in a sieve for 4 to 5 time and let it sit to drain out all water and becomes dry,this helps to remove the sharpness on onions and water too)
Celery Chopped - 1 cup
Coriander Leaves / Parsley - 1/4 cup chopped
Chicken Bouillon Powder ( optional) - 1 tsp
SAlt 
Pepper
Greek Yogurt- 1 cup (this gives creaminess to salad without Mayo and not becoming watery too)
Regular Yogurt - 1/4 cup (use if your salad is too thick and not mixing ,instead you can use 2 tbsp of water too)
Ghee /Olive oil / Coconut Oil- 1 tbsp(optional - Fat Helps to absorb Vitamin A,D,E,K (Fat soluble vitamins,which dissolve only in FAt)from vegetables in salad by our body,So using any fat in salad is advisable.Thats why we use oil base dressing in all salads.But if you having salad with some other item which has oil in it you can skip adding FAt in salads.Fat includes cheese too,So adding a tbsp of shredded cheese on top is also good)

Method:

1.Shred your Poached Chicken in to thin strips.

 2.Take a mixing bowl add onions, celery,shredded chicken,coriander Leaves ,Greek Yogurt , Regular Yogurt , Salt and Pepper and mix them well.


 3.Then add Cranberry , Walnuts chopped and Chicken Bouillon(optional for flavour,if using this reduce your salt while adding) and mix them well.Store them in refrigerator and serve cold or serve it as is too.

Have this as is as Salad  or make a Sandwich With toasted Cinnamon Raisin Bread(My Favourite).
