    For me there is nothing like chicken salad. There are several posts on the Food Forum for chicken salad. Just found this one for curried chicken salad. A different twist to the salad and one to try.

    1/2 pound chicken breast, boneless, baked and sliced
    1 rib celery, diced
    1/4 cup diced onion
    1/8 cup raisins
    1/4 Granny Smith apple, diced
    1/2 teaspoon curry powder
    1/8 teaspoon turmeric
    1/8 teaspoon mustard
    1/4 cup mayonnaise or to taste

    Toss together the chicken, celery, onion, raisins and apple.
    In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise and spices.
    Pour over the chicken mixture, stir and enjoy.

    Interesting. Its getting harder and harder to find good chicken salad or even Tuna Salad. I have not seen many recipes with Tumeric which is good for you. I have not tried cooking with it yet.

    Sounds good, will definitely try it!

    @Stiles/Akin - The trick to cooking with turmeric is that in a lot of Indian cooking, you first make a "tadka" or seasoning mix by adding the turmeric and other spices to a little oil, butter, or ghee and cooking it for a minute to ripen the flavor and get rid of the raw taste. Then add the flavored oil to food. Plain powdered turmeric by itself is kind of chalky tasting but once cooked it's very pleasant! In this recipe for example you could sub 1 tbsp of the mayo for olive oil and use that to cook your curry powder and turmeric. I have the world's tiniest no-stick skillet which I use for tadkas.

    I have been a huge fan of curried chicken salad for a long time,but even that has become harder to find unless you make it yourself.as a substitute we like to have a chicken salad made with dill.
