I finally downloaded the Nom Nom Paleo app this weekend! I probably would have done it sooner but I just got my new ipad for Mother’s Day. I guess I’ve been a good mom! I’m totally excited about having the new ipad but pretty darn excited to now have the new Nom Nom Paleo app on my ipad! Have you seen it? It’s beautiful! I’ve already marked a handful of recipes I want to try ASAP. This weekend I decided to try the Curry Chicken Salad from the app. I’m usually not a huge curry powder fan. Not sure why but it’s not something I consider a favorite spice. After making this salad I might be changing my mind though. I added a little cinnamon to the recipe and only because cinnamon pretty much rocks my world and I absolutely love it in almost anything. That’s just a personal thing so feel free to leave it out if you make this salad. BUT I shouldn’t say if because really it’s a MUST make. It quickly disappeared from my house and I would like to put blame on my husband for eating it all but it was really all me. He got a small bowl of it and went searching for more but it was gone. With that being said I promised this weekend I would make it again. I have a feeling this will soon be added to the favorite recipe box in my house.
So any cookout plans for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend? No plans yet for us but that always changes as we usually decide on things last minute in my house. I have to say one thing I’m super excited for a long weekend. I need one! Between work, school, and just being a mommy I’m looking forward to one extra day. It will also give me one extra day to come to grips that my two munchkins are graduating from pre-school next Friday! Seriously, where did this year go?! I remember when they started school! Time is going by too quickly folks!
Ok, babbling. But I’m excited to share a Paleo Ice Cream recipe at the end of the week! It’s yummy….like addicting yummy. And it no longer exists in my house because it was consumed so quickly. I guess that will be another one I’ll be making this weekend! Stay tune folks.
And if you haven’t seen Nom Nom Paleo’s app you must see it. It’s beautiful and pretty much has you drooling over every recipe. Enjoy the salad and see you back soon!
Curried Apple Chicken Salad
½ cup Paleo Mayo (use this recipe minus the garlic and herbs)
¾ teaspoon curry powder
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
½ teaspoon sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
½ medium lime
1 small apple, cored and diced small
½ cup cilantro leaves, diced
2 scallions, diced
1 pound cooked chicken breast
¼ cup toasted almonds
In a small bowl, combine Paleo Mayo, curry powder, salt and pepper to taste.
In another small bowl, combine diced apple and juice of lime. This step ensures that the apples won’t oxidize (or turn brown).
Shred chicken and add to a bowl. Toss in apples, cilantro, and scallions and toss to combine. Add curried mayo and stir to mix well.
Top with toasted almonds and serve. Can be served wrapped in lettuce or served over spinach or just eaten straight from the bowl.
Depending on your serving size (mine was big) it can make about 3 to 4 servings.
