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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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.

Pretty good to play with...

Good basic chicken salad, but could use a lot more oomph from more curry powder, and perhaps some currants or cranberry.  I added more curry powder when I tasted it after it sat, but still needed more vinegar and a little cilantro.

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.

I didn't have the walnuts and used sour cream instead of yogurt - DELICIOUS! Tastes even better once it's chilled for a couple of hours. The curry flavor is very subtle and the grapes add a sweet crisp flavor. Next time I'll be sure to include the walnuts but it is still fantastic without.
