  • ½ cup mayonnaise I use Hellmann's
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • tablespoons honey
  • juice of 1 fresh lime
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 3 large ribs celery diced
  • 1 cup seedless grapes halved
  • 3 scallions light and dark green parts, finely sliced
  • Pinch cayenne pepper optional, for heat
  • cup salted cashews optional


Make the Dressing

  • Make the dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, curry powder, honey, lime juice, and salt.
  • To the dressing, add the chicken, celery, grapes and scallions. Toss well to combine, adjust seasoning as needed, adding the cayenne pepper, if desired. Chill the salad in a covered container until ready to serve. Add cashews, if desired, just before serving.


Make-Ahead Instructions: This salad can be made and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Wait to add the cashews until right before serving, otherwise they will get soft.
