"A chicken salad with lots of fruit, nuts and a little curry powder. Delicious for any party - great for baby/wedding showers or just for a special lunch. Really good served on croissants."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

apple, finely chopped
cooked chicken breasts, shredded
seedless green grapes, halved
1 (8 ounce) can
crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
I modified for BBQ. 4 C mayo, 2 C sour cream, 4 teas curry blend and put in fridge. 2 small apples, juice from 1 lemon, 8 C cooked chicken breasts cubed, 2 C finely chopped celery, 2 C grapes, 1.5 C pecans, 1# precooked firm pasta. Basically prepared as recipe as instructed. Made just over 18 cups salad. Loved the curry. Did not use pineapple. This is a keeper :)
I did not like it. Too much mayonnaise.
Perfect! Exactly was I was looking for! Thanks!!
This recipe provided us with a great summer night's meal! It lends itself well to adding any ingredients you'd care to, and it's a great way to use up leftover chicken from another meal. Thanks! We really enjoyed it!
Excellent chicken salad! I made it substantially like the recipe, really liked the additional flavor of the curry powder. But I did change a few things, just based on what I had on hand: light mayo and sour cream, a whole cup of pecans which I toasted, and I used a whole 15-oz can of crushed pineapple in juice. I also added a couple of peeled, seeded, and diced cucumbers from my garden since they needed to get used. Absolutely delicious! I served it with rich whole-wheat rolls at our church Game Night and it was a big hit!
This was delicious!! The curry powder adds a wonderful flavor. I made it for a family get together and it was a hit!!
A local tea room served a chicken salad that I loved, so I experimented until I made one very similar to it. This recipe is almost exactly the one I came up with. I did not use apples; I did use whatever I had..raisins, sliced strawberries, grapes, etc. I did not use sour cream; I also added lemon juice and a touch of sugar; and instead of pecans the tea room used salted peanuts (I have also made it with pecans) but I will try the new ideas..sour cream, etc. this recipe uses. I've learned this is a great "make ahead"...it's better if kept refrigerated overnight. The recipe has been requested every time I've served it to guests!
This is such a easy recipe to change and use available ingredients. I often use mandarin oranges instead of pineapple. I use all chicken meat because of the great flavor of dark meat. I have also used rotisserie chicken and canned chicken.
