CURRY CHICKEN SALAD
I owe this fantastic recipe to Chef Hubby in the house. We both have fallen in love with anything Thai or anything that has curry in it. It’s a nice mild taste in the recipe.
I love making chicken salad with half mayo and half greek yogurt or sour cream. It not only gives it a completely delicious flavor but it cuts the fat a ton.
He actually even made homemade mayonnaise! But he didn’t take pictures of it. I told him he hasn’t developed the mind of a blogger yet and having the camera handy. He did give me what he did to make the mayonnaise. So I promise to get that recipe up for you in the next couple of weeks. It turned out amazing! I was completely shocked! No egg yolks were used just whites.
This is the second time he has made this chicken salad. This time I got my hands on it to snap a few pics before it was all gone.
He added pistachio to this batch. Wow it is fantastic! You can easily switch that up and use cashews or sliced almonds like I do in this Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad.
You can also add onion if you prefer and grapes or apple pieces are always fun in chicken salad too. So many different ways to change it up.
I loaded it on a piece of lettuce for a scrumptious little lunch.
