Parisian Mumbai Salad #FoodieFriday #100FootJourney

Earlier this week, I shared my delightful cooking experience at Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles and as promised, I’m highlighting the French and Indian fusion recipe we made, Parisian Mumbai Salad for this week’s #FoodieFriday.   

I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share this recipe, inspired by the film THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY direct from Le Cordon Bleu.  If you are not in the mood for salad, the chicken will be a divine addition to your barbecue spread.

Directions 

1. In a plastic bag, combine the yogurt, ginger, garlic, cardamom, curry powder, salt, and pepper.

2. Add the sliced chicken pieces and marinate for 45 minutes. Set aside.

3. Julienne (2″ x 1/4 x 1/4 in.) mango and apple. Set aside.

4. Proceed making the vinaigrette; in a bowl mix Dijon mustard and red wine vinegar together. Add salt and pepper.

5. Slowly incorporate the salad oil while continuously whisking. Set aside.

6. Take the bread, then cut it into 3/4 inch cubes or bite sized pieces, then drizzle with salad oil.
Season with salt and pepper.

7. Bake bread cubes in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 8–10 minutes. Halfway through cooking check the bread and toss it around to give it an even coating then place it back in the oven until golden brown.

8. While waiting for the bread, toss the walnuts into the grape seed oil, along with sugar and curry powder. Set aside.

9. Get the chicken, then grill it until the meat is white and not translucent. To create crisscross grill marks, grill the chicken following a 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock pattern. When chicken is fully cooked, remove from grill and slice into thin strips.

Assemble the salad.  Begin with a base of julienned mango.  Pile a mound of salad greens on top and then add all remaining ingredients in a decorative pattern.  Optionally, toss all ingredients together in a large salad bowl and serve salad with tongs buffet-style.

    This looks absolutely delicious. I want to try to make this, especially since I am on a salad kick. I’ve been working out and modifying my diet for the past 10 weeks. I’m just 4 pounds away from my target weight, so it’s the home stretch and perfect time to find more salad recipes like this.

      Thanks Daisy! It really is a great dish. I make the chicken on the grill this weekend and it was just as fabulous. Congrats on your weight loss, that’s awesome!

    What a pretty salad. My husband and I were just discussing our mutual yen for a good chicken salad and this one certainly fits the bill. Thanks for sharing.
