chicken salad
Making use of our leftover chicken from last night, and the remaining curry powder from making this dish a few nights ago (one of our staples that I finally know by heart).  I won’t change a thing about the recipe below when I make it again.
[Serves 4]

  • 1/2 C plain, whole-milk yogurt
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 1/2 T freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
  • 1 T minced onion
  • 2 t curry powder
  • 2 t peeled and minced fresh ginger
  • 2 C cooked, medium-dice roasted chicken
  • 1/2 C small-dice sweet apple, such as Fuji
  • 1/2 C toasted, unsweetened, shredded dried coconut
  • 1/4 C raisins
  • 3 T coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • flaky sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, curry powder, ginger, and onion in a medium bowl until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, season with salt and pepper to taste, and stir until evenly combined.
