1 cup walnut halves
4 cups diced cooked chicken (about 12 oz.)
1 cup seedless red grapes, halved crosswise
1 large celery rib, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
2 scallions, trimmed and thinly slice

1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread walnuts on a shallow baking sheet and roast in oven until toasted, about 10 minutes. Let cool.

Coarsely chop walnuts and transfer 3/4 cup of them to a bowl with chicken, grapes and celery; toss.

In a small bowl, whisk together scallions, mayonnaise, yogurt, vinegar, curry powder and pepper. Scrape mixture over chicken mixture and toss well.

To serve, arrange a radicchio cup in center of a plate. Fill radicchio with chicken salad. Arrange greens around radicchio. Sprinkle remaining nuts on top of salad.
