This is a delightful chicken salad blended with pineapple tidbits that makes a great lunch. If you prefer, you can use turkey instead.

Great recipe have made it several times. Like the flavors better than the holiday salad listed at allrecipes. Tips: Add more curry depending on your own personal taste omit a little of the mayo or add as needed. Cut the pineapple chunks into smaller pieces I browned the pecans by spraying with Pam then added to salad.They have a nice flavor. Also added craisins as I didn't have golden raisins. Last I used organic grapes and cut them in half. Serve on a bed of lettuce or a hollowed out cucumber (cucumber boat) for added presentation. Read More

This is very good. I liked it a lot. I didnt have pecans so I put slivered almonds in it and mixed them and the grapes right in. Next time I might try some tart apples instead of the grapes and am wondering what a little red onion would taste like in this. I will probably make again. Definately a sweet chicken salad. I am editing this review just a little bit after eating it again the second day I think this is just a little bit too fruity for me. Read More

This was fantastic. Lots of flavor and really great taste with the fruits in it. I substituted sliced almonds for the pecans and mixed them right in along with the grapes. I served it on a bed of lettuce and sliced wheat pitas into 1/4's. Fantastic!! Read More

I modified the ingredients for the salad slightly but used the mayo dijon and curry dressing. It was delicious! (I made the salad with just pineapple and added dried cranberries. Toasted slivered almonds went in the salad and on top as a garnish.) Read More

Very good. Had to subst toasted almonds for the pecans I had currants so I used them instead of golden raisins. Don't think it would matter. It maybe could use a touch more curry as some others have suggested. Susie Read More
