Chicken salad can be quite low in fat if you dress it properly. In this case, we combine low-fat yogurt and nonfat mayonnaise for a creamy but light dressing. You can serve the chicken salad in pita bread, as suggested here, or you can turn it into an interesting luncheon dish by mounding it in a cantaloupe half.
