Curried Cashew Chicken Salad – Complementary Flavors
Fruit in chicken salad was not something I was fond of in the past. Savory flavors have always been my preference. On my culinary journey, however, I’ve come to appreciate complementary flavors. In this case, the heat of the curry and the sweetness of the grapes. Another great example, is a touch of saltiness, when combined with chocolate. Or creamy coleslaw balancing out a savory barbecued pork sandwich. The magic is in the two distinct flavors tasting better together.
Experiment when you get the chance. Try combining different textures and flavors. You may also find that opposites attract!
