Ingredients

1/3 cup 2-percent Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 teaspoon honey

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup 1/4-inch chunks of pineapple

2 small cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1 small Granny Smith apple, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

1/3 cup cashews, roughly chopped

4 leaves Bibb or iceberg lettuce

Directions

  1. Whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, honey, ginger, lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the pineapple, chicken, apples and three-fourths of both the cilantro and the cashews. Toss to combine and serve right away or refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  2. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a platter and top each with a scoop of salad. Sprinkle with the remaining cilantro and cashews and top with a few grinds of pepper.
