Curry Chicken Salad with Cashews

This is another migratory recipe from my livejournal, so sorry if you've seen it before. It's worth a repeat though cause it's delicious. I repeat, delicious.

Curry Chicken Salad



3 cups cooked chicken, shredded
1 good sized apple, peeled and diced
1/2 cup cashews, chopped
2 green onions, sliced

Dressing:
1/2 cup mayo (use more or less depending on how saucy you like your chicken salad)
2 tbsp apricot jam
2 tsp curry powder
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard

In a big bowl, combine the chicken, apple, nuts, and onion. Separately, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour over the chicken mixture and stir to coat. Chill in the fridge before serving. This is really really good the next day.

A friend said she used cherry jam in this and it was really good too, so I might try that next!

This does look really good. Thanks for suggesting this on my blog. I'm bookmarking it to try. I usually add a smidgen of curry powder to egg, tuna and chicken salad anyways, since I like the flavor. My usual chicken salad includes walnuts/pecans and grapes/apples. My husband loves it!
