Another delicious recipe from Evanston Spice House Manager, Chasity Marini.
Make this salad ahead of time if you can, so flavors can develop.
For the dried berries, you can use cranberries, raisins, or your favorite dried fruit.
Chasity swears this salad is best with dried blueberries.
Take a whole bulb of garlic and slice the top off, leaving the cloves intact. Place it in tin foil and drizzle olive oil on the top, close up the foil and place in the oven at 375 for about 45 minutes until cloves are tender and caramelized.
Coat chicken with olive oil and generously cover with Vadouvan curry powder. Cook chicken thoroughly on a grill pan or a hot skillet.
After the chicken has cooked, cooled, and rested, chop it into bite size pieces.
Smash garlic cloves in a mixing bowl, then add mayo, another tablespoon of Vadouvan, salt, and pepper.
Whisk dressing together.
Add chicken, nuts, and berries to the bowl, then fold together until thoroughly dressed.
Taste the salad, and adjust seasoning as needed—Don’t over salt, the flavors will come together as it rests in the refrigerator.
Let rest for a couple hours, at least.
Serve on a croissant or with crackers
