Man-O-Man, it's summertime and I am feeling ready to participate in some summer BBQ/Picnic/get-together fun. I feel like I have been a slacker lately and haven't really posted much. But I wanted to share one of my favorite "take to a pot-luck Summer picnic/BBQ" dishes. So here we go. It's called Curried Chicken Cashew Salad, and I have to credit my good friend Robin Olsen (not the Robin I knew in High School..Rebecca's sister..whom I would still count as a good friend, but my OTHER friend Robin!) She brought this salad to a party once, and when I tasted it, I thought I had died and gone to chicken salad heaven! I will post pictures of this sometime later, when I have made it (which I will soon!)

First you need the Ingredients: 3 Chicken Breasts, cooked and diced, 1 Cup of chopped celery, 1 Cup frozen peas, 3 Cups cooked white rice (or feel free to substitute in wild rice, or whatever you like...Robin uses a Costco rice blend of wheat, red, and wild rice), 1/3 Cup of chopped green onions, 2 Cups of dry roasted cashews, 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise, 1/2 tsp. curry powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, AND 1 1/2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice.

Basically, you mix the chicken, celery, peas, rice, green onions, and cashews together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, curry powder, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Add the dressing to the chicken mix and Voila! You have super yummy chicken salad!


any special way to cook the chicken? Grilled, boiled, marinated, pan fried, nuked?
