HOW DO YOU MAKE CURRY DIJON CHICKEN SALAD?

WHAT KIND OF CHICKEN DO YOU USE IN CURRY CHICKEN SALAD?
I love using rotisserie chicken for the flavor, moistness, and simplicity. However, you can feel free to use any type of chopped, cooked chicken. I tend to prefer white meat to dark meat in chicken salad, but you can also use a combo of the two depending on your preferences.
WHERE DO YOU FIND GOLDEN RAISINS?
Golden raisins can be found at most grocery stores alongside the regular raisins. You can feel free to substitute regular raisins or even craisins in this recipe if you prefer.
CAN YOU MAKE THE SAUCE WITHOUT MAYO?
Yes. If you prefer a mayo-less sauce, you can feel free to substitute plain yogurt for the mayo. Personally, I love the creaminess and flavor the mayo offers, so I would recommend a blend of the two.
CAN YOU SUBSTITUTE A DIFFERENT KIND OF NUTS?
Absolutely. Chopped pecans, pine nuts, or even walnuts would all be delicious in this recipe. They are primarily adding a crunch factor, so as long as you have that, it should work just fine.
I know, I know….curry can be scary. But I PROMISE. The flavor in this Curry Dijon Chicken Salad is mild, and it’s balanced out by the dijon mustard, the mayo, and the Greek yogurt. Not to mention all the other amazing ingredients!
Whether you’re a curry newbie or a long term curry lover, this chicken salad is a must try.
