My curry chicken salad


My curry chicken salad was based on a recipe from Cooking Light. It had a bunch of interesting stuff in it, like nuts, grapes, but I never had that stuff on hand. So, I just did a basic chicken salad and added curry powder to it. Not just any curry powder, but Penzey's hot curry powder. Curry can be a little wierd and overpowering, but the penzey's has a nice balance and the little bit of heat really adds something. So, here is my basic recipe:

~1 cup cooked chopped chicken
1 green onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/3 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup plain yogurt
healthy pinch salt
a couple of shakes of Penzey's hot curry powder
- mix together and serve on sliced crossant
