It's salad-ception, as the kids might say, or perhaps more accurately it's salads all the way down! But these aren't your stereotypical bland garden salads, because these salads pack a punch of flavor! Chicken Salad On A Salad starts with a curry chicken salad, bursting with spicy Indian-inspired flavors and touches of sweetness from the honey and golden raisins. This chicken salad is then placed atop a refreshing bed of mixed greens, juicy English cucumbers, and bright cherry tomatoes. Then Chicken Salad On A Salad gets dressed for dinner in a simple but deliciously tangy and sweet concoction you'll be tempted to dip bread into just so you don't miss any of it. Perhaps the key to making salads more fun is to stack them!
