This was so good, we had it twice in a week! I once followed the recipe as is. The second time I had some leftover roasted chicken that I shredded. I also substituted the sour cream with plain greek strained yogurt. It was delicious!! A keeper for sure!
Followed the recipe with two exceptions: didn't have cashews so used peanuts instead and served on whole wheat sandwich slices rather than hamburger buns. Next time will try using Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream and sour cream in place of the mayo. The sour cream/mayo combo called for seems a little too much for my taste. But the proportions need to remain the same in order to keep the curry content intact -- which made the sandwich.
Made this salad using leftover rotisserie chicken from Costco and it was delicious! After reading the reviews, I chopped the cashews but served them on the side and I cut red seedless grapes in half and added them to my portion of the salad while my husband preferred his without the grapes. Great refreshing way to use the leftover chicken -- I will be making this again!
My family LOVES this chicken salad! We have experimented with different kinds of chicken (rotisserie chicken from the grocery store - shredded, herb rubbed chicken breasts, smoked chicken breast, rubbed in olive oil and baked... etc.), and it always turns out amazing. We also add a little bit of salt and black pepper. TIP: AVOID SOGGY CASHEWS! If you plan on refrigerating left overs, DON'T mix the cashews into the salad. Sprinkle them on top of the salad on your bun/bread before you put the two halves together.
