One of my favorites in this phase is the Curried Chicken Celery Apple Salad. It is a simple recipe, which yields a fantastically satisfying meal. Crunchy, sweet, and with the bold flavors from your favorite curry powder, this one will remain a favorite, even when I am no longer in kitchen haiku phase.
3 oz cooked chicken, diced
2-3 stalks celery, diced
1 medium apple, diced
Make a vinaigrette with:
1 tablespoon vinegar (apple cider vinegar works very well in this)
1 tablespoon water or chicken broth
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon curry powder
Toss it all together and serve.
This salad travels very well, it is perfect for bringing to work, or when on the road.
