Day 4 Day 4!! We are just plowing through this week and it’s about time for some Cashew Curry Chicken Salad Sweet Potato Toast!! I have made this recipe a few times now and trust me when I say it going to be a new staple. The curry flavor is light but present and I added lots of fun mix ins like dates and mango to keep every bite thoroughly exciting. Am I the only one that gets this excited about food? I have also had my mom, sister and hubby all try it and they all gave the thumbs up! And trust me when I say those 3 are my toughest critics – aka, willing to tell me when something is not blog worthy! You can thank my sister for the many rounds of Grain Free Double Chocolate Cookies. I always appreciate honest feedback because it forces me to make the best and tastiest recipes I can for you!
Chicken salads are probably one of the simplest most versatile meals you can make and I love mixing up flavor combinations! I have made Lemon Garlic Chicken Salad, Five Spice Chicken Salad, and SO MANY OTHERS! I love it too because you can start with super plain chicken (just bake some at 400 for 15-18 minutes), or use rotisserie, or leftovers from something else! Then you can use a clean mayonnaise OR a plain yogurt (dairy free or dairy full!), a little vinegar or citrus to cut through creaminess, then all the add ins you desire! I think it’s always fun to add in a something crunchy like celery, something sweet like fruit and bonus points for a nut – like cashews in this case! I have made plenty of random ones in my day using whatever we had in the pantry and also love using the same concept with Tuna Salad!
Okay before I go, can I just say how cool it has been to see your #sptweek posts this week?! You guys are incredible and I LOVE seeing all of your creations!
Reminder about the knife I use if you are new here! I use this ZHEN knife and it is AMAZING!!
Curry powder is my best friend in the kitchen!
