Filling Tropical Turmeric Chicken Salad Recipe

I have a secret to admit. I’m obsessed with turmeric. Like, I dream about ways to put it in any and every recipe I’m coming up with. I seriously wish I could! The ONE thing stopping me is that it turns everything this incredible, vibrant yellow that looks great but might get old fast if every meal I post is bright yellow, like colourful yellow spaghetti or bright yellow chocolate ice cream. One thing I couldn’t resist adding to was chicken salad, like in this tropical turmeric chicken salad.

Because this tropical turmeric chicken salad is a go-with-the-flow recipe, I don’t have many suggestions to add before starting, but I’ll share some tips that might help to go into it.
