I attended a luncheon with Lisa Welchel the other day in the little town of San Saba, Tx. A chicken salad was served, a very different chicken salad. It was so yummy and I came home to try and find a recipe that I thought had all the elements that the one at the luncheon contained. This is the recipe that I came across. I did not have any lemon juice or celery, so I used lemon pepper without salt and left out the celery. Next time I will have the celery and lemon juice on hand! I also used a smoked chicken breast that my hubby had smoked for me last night, and so I mixed all the ingredients together first and added to my diced chicken breast until I thought it was a good consistency and so I had left over mixture. I used this to make pea salad-YUMMY!! This is a great change to the normal chicken salad that I make, and even the regular fuit and nut chicken salald. My 2 year old will not eat chicken, she only eats Panda Express orange chicken(i know, very strange child that doesn't like chicken nuggets!) and she LOVED this! Great Recipe!

Delicious, we loved the crunch of the celery and water chestnuts and enjoyed the mild curry mayo, it all went very well together. Just made half a recipe for the two of us for supper. Served on baby lettuce surrounded with tomato slices. We had some raisen bread toast with it, nice light supper. Thanks for sharing, I will be making it again during the summer.

We liked the flavour combination of fruit & chicken and the texture combo of crunchy & smooth. We just weren't very fond of the strong curry flavour.

This is a very tasty salad,I liked the crunch of the celery and water chestnut and the curry mayonnaise gives it a lovely mild dressing. Thanks for posting Manda.
