Mimi's Curried Hawaiian Chicken Salad

Mimi's Curried Hawaiian Chicken Salad

LEGALPEACH

"My mother Joyce, who my children call 'Mimi,' is a great Southern cook and has many legendary recipes. This is one of her crowd pleasers. She's been making this very traditional 'lady-like' chicken salad for as long as I can remember. It's best the day after making, and is colorful and fragrant and perfect for a summer supper -- or a ladies' luncheon!"

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place chicken in a large pot of lightly salted water, and bring to a boil; simmer until tender and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Drain, set aside. When cool enough to handle, chop coarsely, and place into a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together mayonnaise, curry powder, lemon juice, and soy sauce.
  3. Stir into the chopped chicken 2 1/4 cups of the toasted almonds. Stir in grapes, celery, water chestnuts, and pineapple. Gently fold in all but 1/2 cup of the dressing. Cover, and refrigerate salad and reserved dressing for several hours (or overnight).
  4. Before serving, adjust dressing to taste, and garnish with paprika and remaining 1/4 cup almonds.

I made this for a baby shower and everyone absolutely raved about it. I did not change a single ingredient (except for using red grapes instead of green) and think this is the way I will make c...

I really wanted to like this, because I like curry and chicken together, but it was just average and a little bland. It was missing something - salt or some additional spice. I didn't include ...

Incredible! My kids devoured this quicker than a candy bar! I used fresh pineapple and used the shell as a serving dish (fancy presentation & easy clean up!) I used walnuts as I did not have al...

Excellent recipe. Did add a bit of honey as suggested. Used red, green and black grapes and bedded it on greens in a trifle bowl. Looked very pretty. cookiegirl

I thought that this was very good. I think it needs more curry and pineapple though.

I love this salad! I have made it several times, and it is one of my new favorites! Its a beautiful presentation and is sure to please.

absolutely gorgeous! So easy to make and easy to adapt to your own taste, I left out celery for instance. I'm defo going to make a load of this for parents anniversay buffet next week.
