This Raita Inspired Chicken Salad gives your tradition chicken salad an Indian kick. The cumin is perfectly cooled down with some cilantro and grapes, then there’s the crunchy almonds really brings it up a notch. You’ll never go back to tradition chicken salad after this.
Chicken salad is definitely a go to lunch in my house. It’s a great way to make sure you get a protein boost in the middle of the day. And it doesn’t need to be warmed up, making it easy to eat on the go. Chicken salad can get a bit dull, so I created this recipe with Indian flavors to spice up my lunch routine.
I had raita the first time when I was writing my review for A World of Flavor. Generally used to cool the palate I love the contrast of cumin and cilantro with Greek yogurt and grapes. Since I always use yogurt as the base for my chicken salads this was a no brainer for me. Just tossed in some chicken! All the spices keep this dish exciting.
Another great thing about chicken salad is there’s some many ways you can eat it. One day I’ll top a salad with it, another day a wrap, another day a sandwich. Helps me not get bored with lunch. Although there are so many flavors this dish is anything but boring!
