Chicken Salad with Cashew Paste

Chicken Salad with Cashew Paste

In Georgia, we usually make chicken salad with walnut paste, but as I had some cashews at hand, I figured, I could use them instead. It is really amazing.


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 celery stick, diced
  • 1 cup cashews, raw and unsalted
  • ½ cup or less water
  • ½ tsp  coriander, ground
  • ½ tsp. blue fenugreek, ground
  • ½ tsp. marigold, ground
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • Salt, pepper
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil


  1. Preheat he oven to 375F.
  2. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper (you can add any kind of seasonings to give additional flavor) and bake for 30 minutes.
  3. Let them cool down, cube into small cubes and place in a large bowl.
  4. Add grated carrots and celery.
  5. In a food processor, place cashews, dry spices and make a fine paste.Add water and pulse one minute until it becomes a paste with consistency of crème fraiche.
  6. Add the cashew sauce to the chicken, toss, taste and adjust the seasonings. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
