Spring Chicken Salad

This salad is so nice and refreshing.  It’s also quite filling thanks to the red potatoes in it.  I love the dressing, which is quite simple but very flavorful.  If you do not like or don’t have potatoes on hand, you can substitute them for hard boiled eggs.  Whatever you prefer, enjoy this delicious salad!

-1/2 lb small red-skinned potatoes, halved
-2 Tbs chives
-2 Tbs white wine vinegar
-1/4 cup non fat plain Greek yogurt
-1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
-1 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite size chunks
-about 2 cups chunks cooked chicken (either rotisserie, leftover or refrigerated precooked)
-1 cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded and sliced
-1 Roma tomato, cut into chunks
4-5 radishes, cut into wedges
-1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
Place potatoes in a small pot, cover with water, season with salt and bring to a boil.  Cover and boil until fork tender, about 6 minutes.  Drain and cool.
Meanwhile, pulse the chives, vinegar, yogurt, salt and pepper in a food processor.  Slowly drizzle in the olive oil and pulse to make a thick dressing.
In a large salad bowl, toss the romaine, potatoes, chicken, cucumber, tomato, radishes and bell pepper.  Add the dressing and toss until well combined.  Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
