Curried Chicken Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by GaylaJ

Delicious main dish salad, perfect for a summer lunch or light supper. I typically use Madras (hot) curry powder, but used a mild blend in this dish as I felt it would benefit from a lighter flavor. Use your own preference and adjust the amount to suit your taste. I garnished with fresh cilantro to add some color, but also ended up really enjoying the flavor it added. The original recipe does not give any chill time, but I think it tastes more balanced after some time in the fridge. -Adapted from Gourmet

This is delicious! I used the meat from a rotisserie chicken. I did equal parts yogurt and mayo, and an apple instead of the fruit. It needs something green, so I think next time I'll add green onion and celery.
