Chicken Bombay Salad A delicious, popular salad, easy and quick too!

This delicious recipe has been generously shared by one of our great cooks, Carina. She's always coming up with great recipes, and here we have Carina's Chicken Bombay Salad. Carina says this is her hubby's favourite salad and can't stop eating it! It's certainly delicious, the curry flavour is not hot, but gives a gentle hint of curry and a little colour to the dressing.

It's an incredibly easy recipe to prepare and perfect if you want to make ahead and keep in the fridge until you're ready to serve. It's always popular at parties so be sure to make plenty!

    I tried this recipe and found the dressing came up short in volume because I love my Bombay salad well dressed. The second time I prepared this recipe, I scaled up the dressing and also added ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt to my dressing mix. A few extra raisins also boosted the flavor and I added 3 stalks of celery fine chopped. Lastly, I switched the pasta to bow ties which I perceive to be a bit more classy and robust. Wow… that is what it tastes like now and it looks more appetizing too.
