Curried Amasai Chicken Salad

It has been one month since my last blog post, so getting back into the swing of things I thought I'd share a new recipe for Curried Amasai Chicken Salad. It is SO DELISH and is a great dish to have ready in the refrigerator for a quick bite when life gets busy. Plus it is a cool and refreshing meal for the rising temperatures we are experiencing this Spring.

What is Amasai?

True whole milk, from GreenFed cows, that is cultured with probiotics and is a rich source of protein, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats (including those Omega-3s we often hear so much about). Amasai is similar to yogurt or kefir and can be consumed as a beverage, eaten with a spoon or used as a nutritious addition in recipes. An excellent way to boost immunity and digestive function, Amasai is also easily digested by those like myself with dairy sensitivity...after many months of consuming Beyond Organic Amasai, I have had no digestive difficulties and attribute that to the breed of cattle which do not carry the casein gene that is common to conventional and standard organic cattle in the U.S. as well as the GreenFinished commitment of Beyond Organic to only feed the cattle what they were created to grasses and herbs. So what are you waiting for? Check out the recipe below and then check out some Beyond Organic Amasai!

Curried Amasai Chicken Salad


2 Organic Chicken Breasts (cooked, cooled and shredded)
3 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and chopped
1 Cup Celery, chopped
1/2 Cup Raisins
2 Lemons, juiced
1" Fresh Ginger, grated
1-1 1/2 tsp. Turmeric
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
1 Cup Beyond Organic Amasai - Plain

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Stirring until well-mixed. Serve over mixed greens. Makes 3-4 servings.

Another benefit to this dish is the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger and turmeric...two great inflammation fighters!
