Apricot-Ginger Chicken Salad

This is my absolute favorite chicken salad...and it's courtesy of my mom of course! I made this for my friend Daniela's baby shower last January and it was a huge hit. Tonight Chad and I had it with a broccoli cheese soup mix. Quick and easy dinner!

Apricot-Ginger Chicken Salad

1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt
3 tablespoons apricot preserves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
6 oz. dried apricots, chopped
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/2 cup celery

Whisk together yogurt, preserves, ginger, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Add apricots, chicken, celery and chopped nuts if desired. Let chill and serve on favorite roll. This is great on a croissant, and can be prepared on the bread the night before and left to chill overnight.
