CHICKEN CURRY SALAD
Jack is away for a few weeks. Not likely there will be too many recipes forthcoming until he gets back home. I admit it - cooking for one is not nearly as fun as for two.
With Jack gone, I was left with a bunch of red grapes. Why is that a problem you ask? Well, I'm not a fan of red grapes. Or any other color for that matter. It's a mouth feel thing. So, why I wouldn't sit down and eat a bowl or grapes, I do think they're great IN things - like CURRY!
See....if you know what you don't like about something, you can tweak it, and prepare it in a way that you do like. I invite you to share with me things you don't like and why, and I will give you suggestions on how you can adjust it so you might find a way you enjoy it. Healthy ingredients, of course.
In addition to the grapes, I also had leftover chicken. This was a great and easy to throw together dish - which turned out to be both my lunch AND dinner today.
