After the news that a local cafe was closing, I begged the owner for this recipe. The sweetness of the red grapes compliments the curry perfectly and the almonds provide a nice crunch. It's always a hit and I'm always asked for the recipe. It's nice served over a large leaf of romaine, on a croissant, or just out of the bowl with a fork!

I made this as directed except substituted coconut oil for the butter. It turned out fantastic. Years ago I had a great chicken salad like this and have been looking for a recipe that matched that. This is it.

We all enjoyed this. In an effort to save calories I omitted the butter just toasted the almonds and curry powder in a dry pan until fragrant. I used garlic powder because I just do not care to bite into garlic in a salad and then I found someone had eaten the grapes I was hoarding to make this so I added a handful of raisins (dried grapes right?). I also added some green onions that needed to be used. I chilled this for an hour as stated but next time when I actually have grapes I will make the salad either in the morning or night before. This only gets better. Thanks for a great chicken salad.

love this recipe. I tried using rotisserie chicken and red grapes..... didn't care for it as much as I do this recipe. I do however double the curry.

Amazing!!!!! I've been looking for one similar to a local cafe and this is pretty darn close! I used 1/4 cup plain non fat Greek yogurt with 1/4 cup butter and one cup mayo with olive oil with one cup regular mayo to try to make it less fattening. Still tastes awesome!!

Great salad! I did make a few adjustments. I used half the butter and for the other half I used coconut oil. I didn't replace all the butter because you really need some of the butter flavor. I used half the mayo and subbed plain yogurt for the other half. I also more than doubled the curry and used about 2/3 the garlic. I also added about a tsp of salt. I don't like drenched salad so after making the dressing up I gradually added dressing to the chicken and grapes until it hit the right mix. I saved the rest of the dressing to use on sandwiches. It's too good to waste! Lastly I recommend at least 8 hours in the fridge before serving for the flavors to really develop. The salad was a hit at a potluck and I will definitely make again....in fact I think this will become my signature potluck dish - doubling the recipe of course!

Been doing this for awhile I like walnuts in mine and either apples raisins or craisins with the grapes.

Delicious! I didn't have almonds on hand so I added 1.5 stalks of diced celery which made it nice and crunchy. This one is a keeper.
