  3. Mix together greek yogurt, mayo, apple cider vinegar, and rosemary.
  4. In a large bowl, combine, shredded chicken (about 2 cups), pecans, shallots, green apple, and cranberries. Toss with dressing until well combined.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill for at least an hour until ready to serve.
