Local Chicken Salad with Yogurt-Herb Dressing

In the summer, we love simply grilling Darby Farms chicken with a bit of spicy marinade. Nothing says summer like a backyard cookout, and when you host a crowd, you’re bound to have a pile of leftovers. This recipe for yogurt-herb dressing is a great way to make a light and summery chicken salad with your extra grilled chicken. If you’re not having a cookout, it also works well with poached chicken and is a fresh alternative to ranch for dipping veggies.
