I've made this recipe 2 X now. Once when we first were married,then years later when I stumbled apon it again. I pulled out my CHICKEN recipe book tonight, and noticed a bookmark. Opened it up and discovered this recipe once AGAIN! A dish I thought tasted of India. The curry,peanut butter,and grapes make up this fresh tasting salad.
