Curried Chicken and Pear Salad

We've been trying to change some of our eating habits since Thanksgiving.  Lon and I took on whole 30.  We feel great and I think we've even lost weight.  Now we are just doing our best to eat well and avoiding sugars and processed foods. This chicken salad is a go-to for us.  It doesn't taste like a diet and it's jam packed with the protein my body needs for fuel.

This salad is the perfect balance of sweet and hot. I love a little sweet with curry, actually I love curry anyway. But, the pears and raisins make this salad taste like a real treat.

Curried Chicken and Pear Salad
2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded or 1 can of white meat chicken drained well
1 - 2 tsp. good curry powder
1/4 cup mayo (I use the whole 30 olive oil recipe)
juice of half a lemon
1/4 cup red onion finely chopped.
2 pears chopped
2 tbsp. raisins
1/4 cup cashews
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. I LOVE curry and the heat, so I probably add even more then 2 tsp. of curry powder.  Refrigerate and serve on a bed of baby spinach for extra greens. I store this salad in an air tight container in the fridge to give me lunch for about 3 days.

I'm not sure if you come to O+P for recipes, but I really just like to cook and spend a lot of time in the kitchen each day. Would you be interested in some of the Whole 30 type meals we are eating regularly? I'd be happy to share.


  1. Yes! My usual lunch is an apple with almond butter and maybe a string cheese. This sounds like I want to eat it every day!
