Chicken salad is one of the all ­time summertime favorites for many people. Yet sometimes we need a little variety to spice up the same-old, same-old recipes. Luckily, someone from Great Britain added curry to chicken salad, and another cherished recipe was created: Curry Chicken Salad.

Add some chopped fruits and maybe a few cashew nuts, and you get a whole new taste and texture experience. Best of all, it's super easy!
