Curried Chicken may seem like a strange addition to a salad, but my husband raves over this salad whenever I serve it, and it is one of my favorites as well!

If you don’t like the idea of adding the extra fats from the bacon grease, you can fry the chicken in a few tablespoons of olive oil instead.

Note* Fresh lemon or lime juice drizzled over this salad really brings out a refreshing flavor!

Feel free to add or subtract any of your favorite/least favorite veggies, bacon or eggs in this salad.

My husband and I decided to try a month of eating no sugar for him, and low sugar for me, (woman has got to have a few sweets you know.) and eating light, healthy meals. I was excited but also a little apprehensive about coming up with ideas. After I made this salad and got good reviews from Him, and loved it myself, I felt like maybe this whole diet thing won’t be so bad after all!
