I usually keep powdered buttermilk on hand, so this was easy. 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered buttermilk plus 2 tablespoons of water worked just fine. We had over baby spinach leaves and it worked just fine for my husband and mother-in-law (who has troubles with chewing and always wants more salt, due to declining tastebuds. With this one, she didn't reach for the salt and I'd halved the original salt, since we're all on blood pressure meds!)
This is delicious! I love the combination of flavors here. There is a very nice balance, the curry is not overpowering and the nectarines are not too sweet when mixed with these other ingredients! This is a wonderful chicken salad recipe!! I would definitely serve this to guests as a unique, refreshing salad! Thanks for posting!

I love to be around family and friends, and yet I also like time to myself. I'm very content reading, journaling, making jewelry and writing letters to friends. I have a dream of living an old fashion lifestyle of cooking using my vegetables from the garden, and only eating my own jam and applesauce. I'd love to have kids and use cloth diapers. I would love to live in a neighborhood where people regularly dropped by to say 'hello'. I love the oudoors...could camp for weeks at a time. Inland lakes are my favorite places to swim. I love to travel, but dislike the eating out that comes with it. So, I've learned to cook on hot plates in hotel rooms. I want to go to Africa. I want to make a difference. I love being around people who love what they do. I love the way music moves people. I love being married to my bestfriend.
