Curried Chicken Salad with Raisins

My neighbour sent me this recipe after her little boy’s birthday party.  I ate several of the lettuce wraps she had prepared with this curried chicken salad and loved them.  In a pinch when I’m looking for a quick healthy protein snack, I will cut up some cucumber and dip it into this type of salad or the egg salad.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Ingredients-

Mayo –

  • 1 cup of olive oil-based mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp of yellow curry powder (more or less, to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup

*Any extra mayo can be used for dipping sauce for sweet potato fries or as a spread for bread-free burgers, etc

Chicken salad –

  1. Cut up 1 cooked chicken into bite-sized cubes.
  2. Place cubed chicken into mixing bowl.  Spoon in mayo and mix by hand until mixture reaches preferred consistency or moistness.
  3. Throw in a handful or two of raisins and mix through.
  4. Spoon into preferred bread or bread substitute (lettuce, wraps, etc) and enjoy!

*Making this salad the night before can often make it taste better the next day.
