A question about a recipe: Chicken Salad with Cornichons and Radishes

I have a question about the recipe "Chicken Salad with Cornichons and Radishes" from The Internet Cooking Princess. Hi there, we're playing it cholesterol-wary these days. I have no problem omitting the eggs; regarding the mayonnaise (which my husband hates anyway), may I substitute a Greek-style, plain yogurt? What do you think? Many thanks, Judith

Sour cream and Greek yogurt, blended would work as well.

That's exactly what I use when I don't want mayonnaise (especially good for homemade ceasar dressing. If the yogurt is too runny, I will strain it in cheesecloth for 20 min to an hour to make it the right texture.

Or if you can get the pressed yoghurt, it is usually the right texture.

If the texture is too thick, I add a few drops of olive oil, or some of the whey that drained out of the yoghurt.

Let us know how it turns out.

Thanks very much for the very timely reply, and the hints on handling the yogurt in order to get the right consistency.

Regards,
Judith
