    Shuzbud's Note:

    This is a lovely, flavourful but light dish that can be easily adapted for a diet with low fat ingredients. You can't get crushed pineapple where I live so I use pineapple chunks and chop them very finely. Cooking time includes half an hour of chill time.

      We enjoyed this very much for lunch yesterday. Lovely combination of flavors. I searched high and low for Korma paste but couldn't find it in any of my local stores but did find Tikka paste so I used that instead. I also substituted sour cream for the mayonnaise (personal preference) and used chopped fresh peaches in place of the dried apricots. This is a nice change of pace from traditional pasta salads. Made for PRMR.

      Great salad. I am really starting to enjoy curry. Nice combination of fruit. I also added some cilantro as FT suggested. I did not chop my apricots too small. I love dried apricots. made for ZWT 6.

      I have to admit I was afraid at first that I was not going to like this salad because of all the fruit, but I was very pleasantly surprised. This made for a tasty lunch today. I used 1/2 lb seasoned cooked chicken breast from Trader Joe's for ease of preparation. I could not find korma paste so I used a korma cooking sauce and omitted the water in Step 4, since I assumed the paste would have a thicker consistency than the sauce. This seemed to work. Also, I did not use light mayo, as I didn't have any--just the full fat version!! Thanks for expanding my horizons. I've definitely never had a salad like this before. Made for Zingo ZWT6.
