"Cooked chicken, red grapes, slivered almonds, and pineapple chunks make a lovely savory-sweet salad that's dressed with a mild curry mayonnaise. Papaya and avocado slices add color and flavor. Refrigerate overnight for the best flavor."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

cubed cooked chicken

pineapple chunks, drained

sliced water chestnuts, drained
toasted slivered almonds
papaya - peeled, seeded, and sliced
avocado - peeled, pitted, and sliced
This is an excellent recipe and does taste better if chilled overnight. Using a rotisserie chicken makes the recipe SO easy. I have also added a large can of pineapple chunks, drained. Served on a large platter with papaya and avocado it makes a nice luncheon entree.
Excellent recipe even if you skip many of the ingredients. I often do a plain chicken/papaya version during the week. So unique, easy quick prep and versatile I have had this for breaky, lunch and dinner and never tire of it.
I followed the recipe exactly with only one omission: I did not have any papaya. I often add curry to my chicken salad, but not this much. I will cut back on the curry to 1/2 tsp, if I make this again. I like chicken salad with grapes, but I don't think the avocado added much, and I love avocado. IMHO, the sweetness of the fruit was not enhanced by the avocado, or vice versa. I would like to try this again with the papaya, leave off the avocado, and cut back on the curry. I will also omit the water chestnuts, since there was plenty of crunch from the almonds and the celery.
I made this Chicken salad for my three adult daughters for our mothers day lunch. They loved it.
