Are you enjoying your summer so far? I sure am, and have been enjoy cooking with all of the in season fruits and vegetables that go along with summer. Earlier this Sunday morning, I went shopping at the Farmers Market in Pacific Palisades. I start my shopping experience by first stopping by Robek’s for a a large Tropi-Kale Smoothie to go– my favorite! Then I walk across the street, being sure to look at all the cute rescue dogs that are available for adoption, with lots of oohing and ahhing, then onto shopping for my fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, cheeses, and always picking up some Greek food items, such a whole wheat pita and tzatziki. I love Sunday mornings and wish there were more of them in my week.
Today, I found these glorious red seedless grapes and knew I had to make something with them. I decided on what is now my favorite sandwich of all time…a curried chicken salad skinnywich.
This skinnywich is filling, creamy, and crunchy. The curry is mild, and bites of sweetness come from the honey, apples, and grapes. Not only is this a delicious skinnywich but a healthy one too! This salad refrigerates well and is perfect for a picnic.
