I am really enjoying Giada’s newest cookbook “Happy Cooking”! The recipes are just so clean, delicious and not too difficult. In this intense summer heat, I’m especially looking for refreshing, light dishes that don’t use the oven or stove. I came across her Easy Peasy Chicken Salad and my husband and I just loved it. It has great herby flavors from the fresh tarragon and chives, brightness from the lemon and crunch from the snap peas. Because I’m obsessed with the slight bite of brown mustard in creamy sauces, I just added a bit. I also used non-fat Green yogurt to make it even lighter. So yummy!
