Chicken Salad with a touch of curry and lime…

BLOG

CURRIED CHICKEN SALAD

Never enough variations on this theme…

This one is not spicy, just mellow and sorta sweet with the crispy almonds, and succulent grapes.  The flavors get more pronounced as it rests, so making it ahead is always nice.

Wrapped up in some buttery lettuce leaves or on a whole grain roll for you family, it’s very filling and full of protein.

    More than just love….I actually have bookmarks on this, your gingerbread custard, the no-bake protein cookie, your cheeseburger pie (my family goes crazy over that one), the cheese blintzes (another fam fav), chili rellano puff, cheesy egg bake (my fav)!

    My family (my son and parents who we live with) tell everyone how great they eat now that I’ve had this surgery! They love your recipes so much, as do I!
