    This robust and flavorful curry chicken salad sandwich is made with a mixture of greek yogurt and mayonnaise, so it has a much lighter taste with more health benefits than your typical calorie packed chicken salad. Greek yogurt not only provides a nice tangy bite, but it's also full of probiotics and live cultures that help aid digestion and speed up metabolism. 

    I recommend using this curry chicken salad as a sandwich recipe between two toasted slices of a pumpkin bagel (for a hint of sweetness), a drizzle of sriracha (for heat), a few cucumbers (for crunch, and lastly, a handful of kale leaves (for extra health benefits) but feel free to use it on whatever vessel you care for!

For a variation of this recipe, try swapping out the red curry for yellow curry and add crushed peanuts, pickled bamboo shoots, and a citrusy carrot slaw.

    You can also use a green curry base and a few more toppings like fresh bean sprouts, a few sprigs of mint and cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
