Curry Chicken Salad Recipe

You might have to go to the store for this Curry Chicken Salad recipe but let me tell you it is so worth it! Here’s everything you’ll need:

  • Coconut Milk, Mayonnaise, Vinegar, Splenda, Curry Powder, Salt, and Pepper – these are all of the ingredients needed to make the sauce! Such wonderful depth and a blend of lots of different flavors.
  • Chicken – to make this recipe even faster, use leftovers or rotisserie chicken!
  • Celery, Onion, and Cilantro – for refreshing crunch and flavor.
  • Shredded Coconut and Almonds – I used the sweetened shredded coconut for some contrast to the curry and sliced toasted almonds for even more crunch!
