Hey everyone! If you're a mom I hope you had a great Mothers Day and if not, well a weekend is a weekend am I right? Even though I didn't get to see my mom in person this year, I was able to catch up via skype which is always nice :)
This is a staple meal at our house, it's always super easy to whip up using leftover chicken, I've made it so often I can't believe that I haven't blogged on it yet so I thought it was time!
I've made chicken salad various ways before...nuts, grapes, celery, cardamon, but this version is our absoute favorite. The curry spices with the subtle sweetness of the cinnamon is the perfect balance. I served it with some simple greens tossed in a citrus vinaigrette for a light, fresh, summertime meal.
