Discussion:

  • Patak’s Garam Masala Curry paste is what we use for this recipe. You could substitute Garam Masala curry powder alternatively.
  • This delicious salad pairs wonderfully with a mixed greens salad and a protein of your choosing on the barbeque. It tastes great the next day!
  • For a larger serving, split the yield into 5 servings which will change the calories per serving to 210. The calories per serving below include the use of all garnishes (nuts, craisins, cilantro).
