Curried Chicken Salad

Today I have one of my favorite easy as can be recipes to share with you. It is sweet, salty, crunchy, herbaceous, and comes together in less than 30 minutes. This curried chicken salad is loaded with apples, celery, cilantro and cashews, packing a whole lot of crunch in each bite. It’s also a great recipe to use up any leftover chicken you may have hanging out in your fridge. So say bye-bye to those sad desk lunches- your sandwich never tasted so good.
