Curry chicken salad is one of those kinds of recipes that you might think you DO NOT LIKE.  Think again.  This recipe has just a touch of curry in it.  It’s not overwhelming, and it’s the perfect light dressing to coat the fabulous ingredients that make up the salad.

Ingredients for Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad recipe

A friend of mine gave me this Fruity Curry Chicken Salad recipe when we were living in Reno, Nevada.  It was a hit with her family, and it has always been a hit with mine as well.

This is all of the good stuff it has in it.  You’ll see plenty of sweet fruit- golden raisins, apples and crushed pineapple.  And there’s a good deal of crunch in the salad too with added celery and toasted pecans. I’m sure you can pick and choose and substitute a little bit here and there if all of the ingredients don’t suite your taste.

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

I serve this curry chicken salad a couple of ways at my house.  The girls in the house usually choose to spoon it over lettuce leaves and eat it as you would lettuce wraps.  The boys prefer to tuck it in between two bread slices or inside a pita and call it a sandwich.  Either way… YUM.  It’s crunchy and fruity, and it has some really nice flavors going on.  Leftovers are always great for a couple of days too.

Here are a few more chicken sandwich recipes you might enjoy:
