A few weeks ago my friends at Chobani sent me some of their delicious new Chobani Champions yogurt to try. We are huge Chobani yogurt lovers. Our refrigerator is never without Chobani on the shelves.
Not only did I have a blast grabbing a spoon and diving in to a container of this delicious yogurt but I also enjoyed incorporating the yogurt into some delicious recipes.
I love salads. I have a salad for lunch or dinner or sometimes both everyday. I always love coming up with new and delicious salad combinations. It keeps me on track with my nutrition and by having new salads it doesn’t get boring from eating the same old same old salad everyday.
This salad is bursting with orange flavors. It is simple, light and refreshing and the creamy orange vanilla yogurt dressing I created using Chobani Champions Vanilla Yogurt is a perfect compliment to this delicious salad. This is perfect to whip up and enjoy for lunch or makes a perfect dinner salad too.

I like everything about this recipe – it would be a perfect entre for me! Chicken and mandarins are two foods I enjoy all the time and I like that this is a light meal with lots of vitamins and protein. Beautiful pictures, too!!
This looks like the perfect light dinner for the horribly hot and humid weather we’re having here at the moment. Yum!
I can’t win ’cause I’m Canadian, but I had to comment and say how fresh and delicious this sounds! My husband adores orange yogurt and it is HARD to find, I’ll have to look for this!
