canon-camera-aug2016-025

The flavor of curry makes me so very happy.  The layers and dimensions to this amazing spice combination is perfect to pair with spicy savory foods and even with something sweet.  

Whenever I use this spice I like to keep my recipes simple.  That way the deep flavor of curry can shine through. This chicken salad is simple, quick, refreshing, and delicious.  Perfect for a healthy lunch, a lovely picnic by the beach, or a fantastic side dish to share at a BBQ. 

You can easily switch the chicken salad up, by using any kind of fruit, nuts, and cheese  combination your sweet heart desires.  Get to the kitchen and begin to create your masterpiece.canon-camera-aug2016-025
