A tasty Chicken Salad with the warm notes of curry. Easy Curry Chicken Salad is creamy, spicy, fruity and crunchy. What more could you ask for?
Curry used to be one of my top five spices; I’d use it in everything. But I think I overwhelmed my family with so much curry that every time I even uttered the word I could see them cringing – not again. So I put them out of their misery for a few short year. Hello family – I’m back! And I’m happy that I made my Easy Curry Chicken Salad – oh, and the family is too.
The curry powder really gives this salad the little extra kick but I also find it to be a very warming spicy. I add to the creamy mayo, celery, grapes and sunflower seeds for extra crunch. You can serve Chicken Curry Salad as a salad or as a sandwich. Actually I like it both ways so that’s why I made it both ways.
I use Madras Curry Powder which, for some reason was hard to find. But no worries, I just ordered it on line. By the way “madras”curry is a curry blend the has many spices, including turmeric, cinnamon, garlic and chili pepper to name a few. It’s on the “hotter” side of regular curry powder.Print
