Lemony Chicken Salad

This chicken salad recipe is much healthier than those loaded with regular mayo, and I love the hint of citrus.

4 cups diced cooked chicken
2 cups red seedless grapes
1 cup pea pods, cut once across
1 cup diced red onion
1 cup lite salad dressing
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tsp fresh grated lemon peel
2 tsp dried basil leaves

Toss chicken, grapes, pea pods and onion together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together salad dressing, lemon juice, lemon peel and basil leaves. Gently fold dressing mixture into chicken mixture. Chill until ready to serve. Transfer salad to serving bowl or plate separately on leaf lettuce.
