I made this salad for a change. I halved the recipe as I didn't think my husband and son would like it as much as I thought I would.....WRONG...the three of us really enjoyed it. In fact, the little that was left over (for my husband's lunch) my son said....too bad...first come first serve....so he took a little more of his Dad's.....so again....it was super! and best of all...it didn't go soggy!!! Thanks for a great salad.... Oh it's really easy to make too!

Oh, so easy, and oh, so good! This is a very tasty chicken salad; has a bit of a tang from the curry, and tart apple(I chose Granny Smith), a bit of sweet from the grapes and a rich and creamy base dressing that just enrobes the chunked chicken in a most lovely way! It's a nice combo and yields a balanced flavor. I served this as a sandwich filler on a nubby whole grain bread with red leaf lettuce and I would make it again!

Wonderfully different salad, loved the mild curry flavour with the fruits and the crunch of the nuts. I scaled back for 2 serves and used 1 large chicken breast (375 grams) which I poached and made up as per recipe which was plenty for 3 of us with a simple green salad on the side. Thank you Denise!, made for I Recommend tag game and recommended by poammy owl.

Yum is right! I used thighs as that was what I had on hand, but otherwise followed the directions. Thanks for sharing!

This is in our summer food rotation - I use light mayo and substitute skim milk in place of the butter. It's a favorite for us!

This is so tasty! Made as written with the exception of substituting cashews for pecans as I did not have pecans and adding a drained can of mandarin oranges. Used leftover rotisserie chicken. This one is going on permanent rotation!
