Curried Chicken Salad

When I took on the Whole 30 I became the master of chicken salads. With my ‘sky’s the limit’ mentality for healthy fats, I took total advantage and made Homemade Mayo. Then I made Curried Chicken Salad out of that mayo. Then I ate all . of . the . mayo. Ha! Kidding. Not really.

Jokes aside, this salad was a filling meal with a ton of flavour.

Curry flavour, that is. Which, by the way, will be making a small hiatus here on the Honour System. Joe has declared that he is officially ‘curried out’ and since my goal is making meals we all can enjoy, I’m going lay off the curry. It’s OK, actually. Summer time is quickly approaching and the heat from the spices won’t be as needed. We’ll be feeling the 40 degree humidity soon enough.

So back to the curry. I stirred in into my mayo along with some turmeric and a pinch of sea salt.

Then it was onto the real star of this salad. Freshly chopped honey crisp apple. The pops of sweetness along with the creamy/spicy duo of the mayo dressing was killer.

Squeezing some fresh lime juice onto the apples first keeps them from browning all gross-like.

Stir everything together with some cooked chicken and dinner is served. I love the combo of curry with dill so I added a good amount of fresh chopped dill to this salad which was absolutely lovely and I highly recommend it.

Top this baby off with some slivered almonds for crunch. I served mine over greens, but it would be good as a wrap or sandwich also.

This salad is my hello to summer. Warm flavours with a sun coloured dressing. Enjoy. :)

Pad Thai Fries

One of my Friday night shows is “You Gotta […]

How to: Make Homemade Mayonnaise

May 15, 2015
Homemade Mayo

  I have to say, I’m pretty pumped about making my own mayo. I once worked with a chef who warned me never to trust a restaurant that didn’t make their own mayonnaise. “It’s oil and egg!” he would say. This chef was also British so there was a bit of a Gordon Ramsey-esque disdain in his tone. That […]
