How To Make curried chicken salad

  • 1
    Make the dressing first. I put the ingredients into a processor because of the butter but if you use yogurt you would not have to do that. Mix well and set aside. This will help the flavors blend.

    All these quantities are approximate, you may need more or less chicken. Dice the chicken into bite sized pieces. Do the same with the fruit and celery. I usually just halve the grapes.

    Mix the dressing with the chicken, fruit and celery. Let sit in fridge till cold When you are ready to serve add the chopped nuts. You can serve as is, on a bed of lettuce or serve endive along side to wrap around each bite.
