check SparkRecipes for traditional raita recipes and use instead of mayo
I used a raita dressing instead of mayonaise to make chicken salad. Used fat free Greek yogurt (it's so thick it can easily substitute for mayo) and followed traditional spices used in raita recipes. It was really delicious and I didn't miss the mayo at all!

Water Chestnuts are fat free and have No cholesterol
Water Chestnuts are crisp and low in calories but are a great source of fiber to lower cholesterol. Add to salads, into a tuna salad or chicken salad, fruit salad or quarter into Brown Rice with chopped onions to reduce fat content of meals. They are free of any cholesterol and are almost fat-free and contain potassium. Make a stir-fry with them. 1/2 cup of water chestnuts contains only 0.1 g fat.
One package of low fat crescent rolls divide out dough put a piece of chicken or low fat low sodium ham & low fat low sodium cheese on each section roll up bake at 350% for 15 minutes. I have a salad with this & a vegetable.
