Curried Chicken Salad
This is one of our favorites. It’s great on sandwiches, lettuce wraps, pita chips or even tossed with some cooked pasta.
To make this #dinnerdoneby9am I fully assemble it in the morning, refrigerate all day and pull out in the evening to spread on sandwiches or serve over a bed of greens.
