Chicken Salad with Mint!!

There is nothing like the taste of mint in the summer! It really brings a wonderful fresh taste to this Chicken Salad.

Chicken Salad with Tomatoes and Cucumbers

1 container Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup mayo( I like the new kind with Olive Oil)
2 medium tomatoes( quartered and seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks)
3/4 English Cucumber  cut into 1-inch chunks
2 teaspoons coarse salt
About 2 cups of cooked chicken breast( I use whole skinned chicken breasts I have baked in the oven,then I take the skin off and shred when cooled)
Freshly grounded pepper
1tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1garlic clove
1/2 cup fresh mint
1 tablespoon fresh oregano

Combine tomatoes and cucmber in a bowl and sprinkle with the salt. Let sit about 30 minutes. Meanwhile mix the yogurt, mayo, lemon juice,rest of salt and chicken together. Season with pepper and stir.

Add the tomatoes and cucumbers to the chicken. Then mix in the herbs.  This can be served in a pita pocket or on a bed of fresh baby greens.
