Chickpea Curry Salad

All Indian Flavors Main Coures Salads

ADD THIS TO YOUR LUNCH ROTATION!

Looking for a delicious no-fuss vegetaian recipe for lunch? 

Here is my simple yet oh-so delicious chickpea curry salad recipe.  I like to make a big batch of this so I can have a fuss-free lunch more than once during the week.

This salad is super versatile and like it served up a number of different ways.

  • Wrapped up in one of my Paleo Parathas
  • Dished on top of 1/2 a baked sweet potato
  • Added to a plate of mixed greens or stirred through with kale which holds up really well if you need a lunch to take with you to the office!

No matter how you decide to serve this up, I am sure you are gonna love the flavors in this dish.

Want a vegetarian version? No problem! (You know I got you, my veggie friends!) Sub the chicken for chickpeas for an equally delicious and plant-based salad!

You've got the warm spices of the curry powder, the crunch of the walnuts, a bit of tang from the mustard, creaminess from the mayo,  and sweetness from the raisins.

Not sure how else to use your curry powder?  Try my Curried Cauliflower Soup.
