I make a similar recipe with a lot more curry powder (about 1 tsp.) and sub dried apricots for the grapes - a little less sweet. It's always a hit, even with people who don't like curry.
Curried Chicken Salad
Spice up a plain chicken salad with curry powder and add grapes for sweetness and chopped walnuts for crunch. Serve the salad in radicchio cups for an elegant presentation.
