Whole Foods Copy-Cat Curried Chicken Salad

I have to tell you that I am pumped about this recipe! Have you ever had the curried chicken salad at Whole Foods? It’s deeeelicious! One day I wrote down all the ingredients to attempt to remake it. Months later I have finally recreated it and I don’t know why I waited so long!

This recipe certainly isn’t as good as the real thing, but it’s close! It does not have any mayo, but I don’t miss the mayo at all. It has a pretty bold flavor, so if you like your chicken salad a little milder just reduce the spices and leave out the cayenne pepper. My favorite way to serve it is over spinach. It’s also great with crackers, in a sandwich, the options are endless πŸ™‚
