  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, cider vinegar, sugar, curry powder, and black pepper together in a bowl until smooth. Lightly toss turkey meat, red grapes, apple, celery, red onion, and walnuts in a salad bowl; pour dressing over salad and toss again to coat. Chill at least 1 hour (or overnight for best flavor).


  • Cook's Note:
  • Four tips to make it more to your liking: Substitute any fruit with apricots, dried cranberries, or raisins. You can use fat-free mayo, yogurt, or sour cream instead of regular mayo. Use chicken or tuna, or omit the meat for veggie version. You can substitute any nut; most popular is pecans.

I was prepared for my family to like it and for me to think it was just Ok. Wrong and wrong. It was great, we loved it! It was one of the best salads I've made. I made as instructed with jus...

My turkey that was leftover from Thanksgiving was smoked, which gave this salad a very nice flavor. Definitely allow time for the flavors to blend, and make sure your curry is reasonably fresh.

This recipe is BANGIN'!!!! That is all.

I made the recipe as written except subbed dried cranberries for the grapes. It was really good and husband raved about it!
