Curried Chicken Salad

I’ve been making this curried chicken salad for many years.  The Loon flips his wig (yes, his wig) every time I make this for him.  Serve it on a bed of Boston lettuce, or better yet, serve on lightly toasted pumpernickel bread.   Wow, oh wow.  This is good.  You will love this as much as The Loon does!

Curried Chicken Salad

Curried chicken salad is so fresh, and explodes with flavor. Be sure to roast your chicken in the oven and then dice. If you're up to it, why not try homemade mayo, it truly takes this dish to the stratosphere. Yum!!
