Curry Chicken Salad with apple

My friend from the east coast relocated out to Los Angeles not too long ago so I invited her over for a “welcome” lunch. I tried this recipe and loved it. Except I originally served it with sourdough bread, which I found to be heavy and overpowering. I made it again and found that it’s perfect with a side of pita. Oh, and it’s even better with a mimosa!

My recipe is slightly different than the one linked.


4 boneless chicken breasts/cutlets, grilled and cubed
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup diced red unpeeled apple
Handful of raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Curry powder to taste (I love curry)
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan Pink salt
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Ground cayenne pepper to taste
Mayonnaise to taste (I used about a cup)


After grilling the chicken, let it cool and dice. Combine the chicken and the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, add mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate. Serves about 5 people. Don’t forget the mimosa and enjoy!
