After last week’s cucumber noodle bowl with a summer chopped chicken salad, I’ve been craving cucumber noodle bowls.
With temperatures hot and the abundance of fresh cucumbers, what’s not to love about these easy spiralized bowls?
Today’s cucumber noodle bowl features a curried chicken salad with sweet raisins and crunchy celery and almonds. This dish has the perfect balance of sweet, savory, crunchy, and refreshing.
The cucumber noodles become coated with the curried chicken and each bite comes with a bit of fresh cucumber that complements that strong curry taste. The almonds give it an extra bite and some healthy fats, while the raisins give it a taste of sweet.
I’m seriously obsessed with cucumber noodle bowls, but if you aren’t set on the idea, try putting all of this in a wrap, a collard green, or even as an open-faced sandwich! If you have this as a sandwich, I’d suggest tossing together the cucumber noodles with the curried chicken mixture, for ease of serving.
I got into curried and creamy salads after writing one of the recipes for my next cookbook, Inspiralize Everything. I made Collard Wraps with Curried Egg and Apple Salad – they’re SO dreamy!
No matter which way you enjoy your curried chicken salad, you’re going to love this combo. And if you’re a vegetarian, sub in eggs instead of chicken or even some mashed chickpeas and avocado. Do you!
