This is a nice, easy chicken salad. A friend gave me this recipe.
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 2 tablespoons minced green onions
- 1⁄4 minced celery
- 1⁄4 cup chopped cilantro
- 4 cups chopped cooked chicken
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Combine all the ingredients except the lettuce in a medium-size bowl.
- Serve on lettuce leaves.
The cilantro gives this chicken salad a good flavor, but the curry is overpowering. I tried cutting the curry back by 1/2, and that did seem to help. You may want to cut it even more, starting with about 3/4 tsp and then increasing until you achieve the strengh you want.
I was pointed to this recipe by my daughter, and boy was she right on. This is a great and an easy recipe. I made it exactly as is since I had all the ingredients on hand. I agree with TeacherLaLa that a little something sweet would be a great addition, but not absolutely needed. I get to take the leftovers to work for lunch. Yea! Thanks for posting this recipe Hey Jude.
I love curry, so I made this with the full 2 tsps of curry powder and liked it fine. I added white raisins & chopped walnuts and stuffed it into pita bread. It was great!
