I can't recall the first place I tried a curry chicken salad-  it was at a deli spot, Whole Foods, or Trader Joes- but I immediately like it and tried to figure how to create my own healthy version without mayonnaise. 


This is the recipe that came about. A big hit, I must say. It doesn't last long in my house.

If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
