Simple Curry Chicken Salad

I love chicken salad, but I haven’t always. Up until a few years ago, I avoided it at all costs. The main reason being that I do not like raw onions. Then I saw our local gourmet market carried onion-free chicken salad. I thought it was worth a shot. I fell in love instantly.

Since that time, I’ve had fun playing around with chicken salad and making it all kinds of different ways. I’ll be making chicken salad all throughout the summer. It’s such a great and easy lunch to be enjoyed with all the fabulous summer fruits and veggies. Plus, our whole family loves it too.


Simple Curry Chicken Salad

  • 1/2 lb. cooked chicken, shredded or diced
  • 1/4 c. diced celery
  • 2 T. diced green pepper
  • 2 T. sliced green onions
  • 1/3 c. mayonnaise (you can add more if you like your chicken salad creamier)
  • 1 T. curry powder
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • 1/4 t. each cayenne pepper and coriander, optional

1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Refrigerate until serving.

Easy as can be, but SO very good.

  1. Ooh, this looks good. A food store in my city had a fantastic curry chicken salad (sometimes with little pasta shells, sometimes not) and I miss it.

  2. I’m always scared of chicken. Afraid I won’t cook it all the way and that people will get sick… This recipe looks very yummy and I could use canned pre-cooked chicken. Great idea! Thanks!

  3. Looks great! I didn’t know that any chicken salad had onions in it–now I’m going to have to look out when I get it out to eat. LOL

  4. Sounds yummy! I love Rachael Ray’s recipes for chicken salad, she does a curry, a peanut butter based Thai version and more… so yummy, easy, and a crowd pleaser!
