Curried Chicken Salad
Upgrade your lunch with this delicious recipe for curried chicken salad with raisins!
My mom loved a good curried chicken salad. We used to go to this little deli off of the highway for lunch, and every time we went, my mom would order the curried chicken salad. I remember thinking that it didn’t look all that appetizing, but years later, I’m a curry nut. I wish my mom was still around to enjoy this delicious salad with me. I make mine just as I remember hers, with cashews and golden raisins.
You might think curry is a bit grown up, but the sweetness of the raisins ensures that kids of all ages enjoy this salad. My boys and I enjoy it best on buttery crackers—sooo good!
