Ø Curry Chicken Salad

Buddha finds bliss in curry, but it’s false!

A couple of years ago I bought this beautiful curry plant.

Brought it home, nurtured it, enjoyed it’s fragrance and

today used a bit in lunch.  Turns out it’s not curry, at

least not the one I thought it was.  Luckily it can be used

as a spice,  but sparingly.  The plant is anti-inflammatory,

OK good.  It smells like curry aka as in “curry powder”

which is actually a blend of many spices including leaves

from the curry tree.  This is how I was fooled, looking

through the herb section at my local garden store.  I

thought the “curry plant” I bought was curry, a main

ingredient in curry powder blends .  Lesson learned, things

are not always what they seem.  Lunch was delightful.

Enjoy the pictures, and recipe which is Gluten-Free, Paleo,

and Low-Carb.
