Are you bored with the traditional chicken salad? This version — a curry chicken salad — is a quick, tasty alternative that blends exotic curry and turmeric with sweet raisins and crunchy almonds.
This curry chicken salad can be served solo or on top of a bed of lettuce for even more crunch. It’s a great way to use any chicken you have leftover in your fridge. (We personally like to keep cooked chicken on hand for just this purpose.)
