I love chicken salads, don’t you? I love to eat them plain, but I like to have chicken salad sandwiches even more! This Curried Chicken Salad steps it up a notch from your usual chicken salad, both in flavour and in texture. I love the crunch added by the apples, celery and almonds and the sweetness that the grapes and dried cranberries bring. The dressing is somewhat low fat as it uses a mix of Greek yogurt and mayo and that’s always a plus, especially when, like in this case, being “light” is not a synonym of being boring and tasteless. The curry powder adds a nice kick to the dish and it rounds up all the flavours. It makes for a delicious and refreshing lunch! Enjoy it with your favourite bread or try it with my Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread.

Yum! I have a great potato salad recipe, but adding a kick of curry powder sounds like something to try (especially for chicken salad).
