Creativity Makes a Classic
Noujaim’s Chicken Curry Salad – hailed more than once as “the best thing since apple pie” – is actually the product of a happy mistake. It was the day after Thanksgiving in 1988 when our chef, George Noujaim, found himself with a surplus of turkey on hand. Rather than resorting to soup and sandwiches, he grabbed some curry, walnuts and raisins and whipped up a brilliant salad, much to the delight of friends and family. Back then, turkey wasn’t as widely available after the holidays, but that didn’t stop the demand for more. It was at this juncture that Noujaim’s Chicken Curry Salad was born.
Though we’ve refined our Chicken Curry Salad over the years, using Madras curry for extra flavor and kick, the core recipe is the same as that very pleasant surprise we stumbled upon back in 1988 – and so is the desire people have to keep coming back for more.
