Interesting lunch or dinner recipe for Curried Chicken Salad with red peppers, peanuts and raisins
1/2 cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
1 Tbsp hot curry powder (or 1 Tbsp sweet curry powder + a pinch of cayenne pepper)
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1/4 tsp fresh black pepper
2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
1/2 large red bell pepper, cut into cubes the same size as the chicken
1/4 cup roasted, unsalted peanuts
1/4 cup golden raisins
2 Tbsp roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
In a medium bowl, mix Miracle Whip or mayonnaise, curry powder, honey, rice vinegar and black pepper. Taste, and adjust seasoning if needed with more honey or pepper.
Add remaining ingredients, and stir well to combine. Serve atop lettuce leaves, or combine with 2 cups of cooked low-carb pasta for a one-dish meal.
