Curry Chicken Salad with Grapes

Recipe by  

"After the news that a local cafe was closing, I begged the owner for this recipe. The sweetness of the red grapes compliments the curry perfectly and the almonds provide a nice crunch. It's always a hit and I'm always asked for the recipe. It's nice served over a large leaf of romaine, on a croissant, or just out of the bowl with a fork!"

I made this as directed except substituted coconut oil for the butter. It turned out fantastic. Years ago I had a great chicken salad like this and have been looking for a recipe that matched that. This is it.

We all enjoyed this. In an effort to save calories, I omitted the butter, just toasted the almonds and curry powder in a dry pan until fragrant. I used garlic powder because I just do not care to bite into garlic in a salad and then I found someone had eaten the grapes I was hoarding to make this so I added a handful of raisins (dried grapes, right?). I also added some green onions that needed to be used. I chilled this for an hour as stated, but next time, when I actually have grapes, I will make the salad either in the morning or night before. This only gets better. Thanks for a great chicken salad.

I prepared this exactly as directed and took it to a party. It was a hit with people going back for seconds and thirds, Great recipe!!!

Amazing!!!!! I've been looking for one similar to a local cafe and this is pretty darn close! I used 1/4 cup plain non fat Greek yogurt with 1/4 cup butter and one cup mayo with olive oil with one cup regular mayo to try to make it less fattening. Still tastes awesome!!

love this recipe. I tried using rotisserie chicken and red grapes..... didn't care for it as much as I do this recipe. I do, however, double the curry.

Really good with toasted pecans. I like to serve it with buttery round crackers.

Been doing this for awhile I like walnuts in mine and either apples raisins or craisins with the grapes.
