Curried Chicken and Pineapple Salad

About This Recipe

My husband loves curry. He requests a recipe for Orange Curried Chicken every year on his birthday in January. And one of his favorite recipes is for Curried Chicken Salad.

But I wanted to see if I could jazz up the salad a bit, and add more ingredients. The salad seemed perfect as-is, but I am always fiddling with recipes.

I had to think and think about this, because I wanted to add ingredients that would really make the salad brighter. I hit upon crushed pineapple and cashews. The pineapple adds sweetness and a bit of tartness, and the cashews add wonderful crunch.

Enjoy this great salad.

While the pasta cooks, in a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, chutney, curry powder, turmeric, and pineapple juice and mix well.

3

When the pasta is al dente, drain it and add immediately to the dressing in the bowl; stir gently to coat.

4

Stir in the chicken, grapes, pineapple, cashews, and celery and mix gently. Cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours before serving.
