Chicken Stir Fry Salad

Today, from yesterday's dough I made, I am baking Pain D'Epi, or Wheatstalk shaped bread.
I'll get better at it, it doesn't look THAT bad, but as you can plainly NOT see, I am
not posting a picture.
Still edible with dinner tonight.
I am really enjoying this new cookbook, and method of making bread. PERFECT for busy working moms who love to serve fresh bread with meals from time to time.
Here's a recipe for a fantastic salad for the summer!
Remember, cook the chicken ahead of time and chop all that needs chopping, and one day during the week, all you have to do is assemble the salad!
Chicken Curry Stir-Fry Salad A cool salad composed of crisp apples, dried cranberries and a delicate curry flavor is topped with a warm chicken mixture for one outstanding salad. Dressing

Sounds yummy! I'll try it the next girls night or something, my Bill doesn't like curry. Maybe at a pictionary ?
