Now that we're back in the swing of fall schedules (or at least trying to be), we decided to share one of our own recipes that's perfect for packed lunches, a quick snack or even an easy dinner at the end of a long day. This Curried Chicken Salad is adapted from the amazing Ina Garten and is made extra delicious with Bloom Organics Curry Powder and Garlic Powder! We love that we can add whatever's on hand to enhance the flavors of this dish, and (pro tip: we think this tastes better after it's spent some time chilling out in the fridge)!
Happy (+Healthy!) Cooking!
