Going to Whole Foods and picking up their curry chicken salad recipe is a delicious dish I would buy ALL THE TIME when I would go there. So, since I haven’t been there in a while, I wanted to replicate this dish with a little twist.
This curry chicken salad recipe has cranberries instead of raisins. Cranberries are a wonderful alternative to raisins. Cranberries have less sugar than raisins. They are also lower in calories than raisins and slightly more fiber.
