Students learn from CulinArt

CulinArt Cooks

One of the many events offered by Campus Life Services (CLS) during Welcome Month was a cooking class organized by CLS in collaboration with CulinArt last week. It was a fun afternoon where students across disciplines participated in preparing quick, yummy meals.

The dish of the day was “Skinny Curried Chicken Salad.” A highly interactive session, the CulinArt Chef guided students with step-by-step instructions.

After a few secret tricks were imparted, the outcome was a luscious salad in lettuce wraps. Done in seven minutes exactly!

Here’s the recipe:

Skinny Curried Chicken Salad

Ingredients:

½ cup low fat mayonnaise
½ cup nonfat plain Greek Yogurt
2 tablespoons curry powder
2-1/2 cups diced cooked chicken
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 green onions, chopped (white and green parts)
¼ cup dried cherries
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

1. In a small bowl whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, and curry powder until creamy and well blended.
2. In a large bowl toss together the diced chicken, celery, green onions, and cherries.
3. Add the dressing to the chicken mixture and stir well.

Tip from the Chef:
To help the chicken absorb more of the curry flavor, refrigerate the salad overnight.
