Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Did you know that curry can help you fight Alzheimers and cancer?  Research shows that curcumin, a component of tumeric found in most curry powders, is a protective agent.  Eating spicy foods also helps you feel fuller.  So in this Monday’s Meal, you’ll get to use that power curry powder to add a new twist to an old favorite.  Enjoy this curry chicken salad in a whole wheat pita or lettuce wrap.

Want to get a good deal on curry?  I buy mine for under $3 at the Chinese grocery store.  Most ethnic food stores carry curry at a good price.
