Curried Fruit + Nut Chicken Salad

DSC03866

The Mix:

  • About 3 oz shredded chicken breast
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • About 10 grapes, halved
  • About 1/3 cup chopped apple
  • ~1.5 tbsp chopped pecans
  • 1 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 2 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp light mayo
  • 1/2 tsp-ish curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp-ish cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
  • Dash red pepper flakes
  • Dash salt and pepper

All those flavors made such a great combo! I think the cinnamon was the key ingredient. The whole salad reminded me so much of thanksgiving, and I loved the sweet grapes, apple and cranberries with the chicken and celery and spinach.

I packed a tub of spinach in a separate container and dumped on the salad when it was time to eat:

I made a vegetarian version of this, substituting smoked tofu for the chicken and it was DIVINE. Reminded me slightly of the coronation chicken sandwiches I ate in my pre-veggie days – but much healthier and tastier.

This is an awesome recipe. I doubled it and am having my first serving on top of 9-grain Great Harvest. To.die.for. good. I wasn’t sure about the cinnamon, but you were right, it makes this recipe. So, so good!
