Curried Mango-Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwich

Curried Mango-Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwich

A delicious, easy sandwich filled with hearty chicken salad studded with crunchy toasted walnuts. Great for lunch or a light supper with soup.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced or shredded (about 4 cups)
  • 1 stalk celery, minced
  • 1/4 cup very finely minced red onion
  • 1 mango, diced and/or pulped (or 1 heaping cup diced frozen mango)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise (plus a little extra for the bread, if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • A dash or two of cayenne
  • 1 cup lightly toasted California walnuts, minced


Optional:

  • A handful of minced fresh cilantro (okay to include smaller stems)
  • Salad greens for the bread, if desired

Directions

  1. Combine everything in a medium-sized bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. Divide among 4 slices of fresh or toasted artisan bread (sourdough walnut would be great!) that have been spread lightly with extra mayonnaise, if desired, and possibly lined with a leaf or two of lovely fresh salad greens.
  3. Serve open-face, or top with a second slice of bread.
