Curried Chicken & Caribbean Red Papaya Salad

After years of lifelessly boring deli chicken salad, it’s time to take this salad on a different direction. The change agent being sriracha, a Thai hot sauce typically seasoned with garlic, vinegar, sugar and spices. No one will ever again say chicken salad is boring.

2 tbs mayonnaise
2 tbs plain greek yogurt
1 tsp lime juice
½ tsp curry powder
salt and pepper to taste
½ tsp Sriracha
1 cup shredded or cubed cooked chicken
1 cup Caribbean Red papaya (approximately 50% color with the fruit giving to a gentle squeeze.)
2 cups your choice lettuce

·      Mix together mayonaise, plain greek yogurt, lime juice, curry powder, salt, pepper and Sriracha.
·      Combine this dressing with leftover shredded or cubed cooked chicken and semi-ripe papaya chunks. Serve on a bed of greens.

Serves 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
