Bring on the yummy summer salad

This is one of my most favorite salads in the whole wide world! I serve it on greens or a wheat roll. I can never keep it around long enough to taste it the next day but I'm sure that it would save well if you have leftovers.

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad
· 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - grilled and diced
· 1 stalk celery, chopped
· 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
· 1 small apple - peeled, cored and chopped
· 1/3 cup golden raisins
· 1/3 cup seedless red grapes, halved
· 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
· 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
· ½ to 1 teaspoon curry powder depending on your love of curry
· 3/4 cup mayonnaise
· Salad greens
1. In a large salad bowl combine the chicken, celery, onion, apple, raisins, grapes, pecans, pepper, curry powder and mayonnaise. Mix all together, tossing to coat. Spoon onto bed of salad greens & the salad is ready to serve!
