This is a refreshingly exotic salad with sultanas, tofu, and nuts. This salad is a very adaptable recipe, so you can add more of anything to suit your tastes. Serve chilled over mixed greens, if desired.

Loved this recipe. I made this for a crowd so I beefed up the recipe considerably. Used two packages of tri-color pasta and pretty much doubled everything else. Like other cooks I added lots more of the mayo curry dressing -- about two cups mayo and four tablespoons curry and it was perfect for the amount of pasta I had. I also didn't have raisins so I used "craisins" or dried cranberries. Subbed out pine nuts for chopped toasted almonds. I left out the tofu. This would have tasted GREAT with diced ham. I'll definitely make this again. (Oh and I added the apples in lemon juice right before serving. This was a nice way to avoid the drying-out that other cooks have noticed.) Read More

It was 4 star tasty but i spent a day and a half trying to get the consistency right. I would recommend trying it at home with extra ingredients on hand in your spare time. I wanted it for a party the next day and was disappointed with the initial results. It definably needs lots more of the sauce but how much more depends on your tastes. I found it kinda dry even with the extra sauce but on top of lettuce and with a few sliced grapes it was really good. Read More

Made this with normal pasta not tri-colour didn't have any tofu so omitted that and used yogurt instead of mayo to make it healthier. Doubled up all the ingredients except for the pasta as others suggested.Absolutely delicious tasted very much like coronation chicken. Needs to be eaten on the same day or the pasta absorbs all the sauce I revived it with a little olive oil. Read More

This is a delicious recipe. I reccomend it highly. I made it twice in two weeks. I tried it with orzo and it was really good. I did find that I needed to double the quantity of the curry dressing that you mix in for my own liking. Read More

Tastes great.. The first time I made it i used tofu second time I used chickpeas-YUM! I feel that the amounts used in the recipe are not enough. I just added more of everything until I liked it. I actually think this tastes better the next day. Read More

I love this salad! I substituted jicima (I had some I needed to use up) for the apple which worked wonderfully. The 1/4 cup of crumbled tofu is a savory addition that works extremely well with the curry dressing. Like the previous reviewer I doubled the curry dressing. Read More

I used pumpkin seeds instead of pinenuts. I also grated the apple the same as the carrot. I added about a tbsp of honey. Read More
