Chicken Curried Salad

This delicious salad recipe is from a church cookbook that has been misplaced.  Thankfully we gave some of our favorite recipes to my sister and her husband when they got married, and she was sweet enough to e-mail it to me with the kind suggestion that maybe I should just put it on my blog.  Smart girl.
Curried Chicken Salad

  • 1/2 c. Mayo
  • 1/2 c. plain yogurt (you can use sour cream, but we always use yogurt because we always have yogurt, it’s more lactose friendly, and we never have sour cream)
  • 3/4 tes. curry
  • 1/4 tes. salt
  • 3 c. diced chicken, cooked (omitted because we didn’t have any chicken)
  • 1/2 c. red seedless grapes, halved
  • 3/4 c. celery, sliced
  • 1/3 c. green onions
  • 2 granny smith apples diced
  • 1/3 c. pecans or cashews (Z put in chopped almonds since that’s what we had and they were great)
Serve on red leaf lettuce (last night, romaine) with cantaloupe.
I had Trader Joe’s garlic naan bread (the long, narrow fresh kind, not the round kind or the frozen stuff) with my salad – slightly toasted with a little butter…mmm!  Z had a grilled (broiled) Havarti cheese sandwich.

Thanks for the recipe, Hilary, and thanks for dinner, Z.
