Curried chicken salad with apples and raisins

This chicken salad recipe offers a different take on a traditional salad. Enjoy this chicken salad with whole-grain crackers, spread it on whole-wheat bread for a sandwich, or scoop on a bed of salad greens. Sweet apples and raisins strike a delicious balance with the fragrant curry. Put leftovers to use and chop leftover chicken from dinner to incorporate into this quick salad.

You can also use store-bought rotisserie chicken for great results.
