Curried Chicken Salad

An easy and delicious recipe, Curried Chicken Salad. Great for summer months! // The Ezer Wife

Summer calls for cold salads, and not just the leafy green kind. Salads are anything that’s covered in a dressing and this Curried Chicken Salad is a winner! The dressing consists of mayonnaise and curry powder, and if you’re looking for a cool, easy lunch then this recipe is for you.

Unlike my Colorful Chicken Salad which relies on the added ingredients for not only color but flavor too, this salad gets most of its flavor from the dressing. Curry powder has a distinct flavor and is a blend of several spices. Have you tried making your own yet?

The crispness of the celery, crunch of the cashew, and sweetness of the raisin come together for a light, refreshing salad. Perfect on its own or great as a sandwich or with crackers, this recipe will find its way into our fridge through the summer and into fall.
