Delicious and clean tasting chicken salad! I used regular garlic for the powder and to enhance the lemony flavor more, used the zest from half the lemon as well. I can eat this salad often - even on those days when nothing sounds good. Thank you for posting. Made for Asian forum's unrated Asian recipe tag.
I found this enjoyably different from southern chicken salad and am glad I tried it. The chicken salad does have a strong taste of ginger and has a slightly tart "clean" taste from the lemon. I liked using a mixture of yogurt & mayo & even reduced the mayo by a third as the salad reached a sandwich creaminess level before using all of it. I think next time I would up the other spices a little and add maybe julienned snow peas & slivered almonds or toasted sesame seeds. Made for Asian Tag.
