When two excellent foods are combined, the result is frequently a bad dish.
This is because eating salad with chicken is code for eating too much mayonnaise.
In fact, whether it’s Subway or your local sandwich shop, chicken and tuna salad sandwiches are invariably the worst item on the deli menu.
In this recipe for Chicken Salad Sandwiches, we start with a small amount of mayo made from olive oil and then amp up the flavor with complex, savory notes from golden raisins and curry powder.
Make a large batch of the salad as part of your weekly meal plan, and then use it to top a bowl of mixed greens, fill pita pockets, or add it to other sandwiches.
