LOOKING for: chicken salad

arandygailJuly 8, 2009


I am looking for a chicken salad recipe that you serve as a salad (as opposed to one that you put in a sandwich). I would like one that includes grapes and almonds/pecans.

Anyone have a good one?

This was first served to me at a mother/daughter luncheon when I was a teenager. I will be 54 this month, and it remains a favorite of mine. I think it is the curry powder that makes it special.


In a bowl, mix together the following ingredients:
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. curry powder
1 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
Mix above well:

In another bowl, stir together:
4 cups cooked and cubed chicken or turkey
1 - 5 oz. can water chestnuts, sliced
1 lb. green grapes
1 cup celery, diced
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup mandarin oranges, drained

Mix all ingredients and dressing together. Chill several hours or overnight. Serves 8.
