Ingredients

Scale

FOR THE CHICKEN SALAD:

  • 2 cups cooked chicken
  • 1 cup seedless purple grapes, halved
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced or diced
  • 23 Tbsp. sliced green onion
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro (can substitute parsley or basil)
  • 1/41/3 cup salted cashews, roughly chopped

FOR THE CURRY DRESSING:

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1/21 tsp. yellow curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (or more, to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper (or more, to taste)

Instructions

FIRST, MIX UP YOUR DRESSING:

  1. In a small bowl (or the bowl you plan to mix the salad in), combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, curry powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. Whisk until smooth and well combined.
  3. (Keep in mind you want the dressing to be a bit punchy since the flavor will mellow out once the salad ingredients have been added.)

NEXT, ASSEMBLE THE CURRY CHICKEN SALAD:

  1. In a large bowl, combine chicken, grapes, celery, green onion, cilantro, and cashews.
  2. Add the curry dressing and gently stir to mix the dressing into the other ingredients. Stir until everything is well coated and evenly distributed.
  3. If possible, chill 30 minutes before serving. (Feel free to wait to add cashews until right before serving.)
  4. Serve with bread, toast, tortillas or grain free wraps, crackers or grain-free crackers, lettuce leaves, apple slices, cucumber slices, or a bed of salad greens!
