Coconut Curry Chicken Salad

A couple weeks ago I attended a wedding.  Following the wedding we found a really cute place to have a late lunch.  We went to Plates & Palates.  It's your basic cafe; sandwiches, salads, wraps etc.  I ordered Coconut Curry Chicken Salad.  It was absolutely delicious.  Eve since then, I've been craving some.  So I decided to make a similar recipe.  And it turned out GREAT!

makes 2-3 servings

1/4 c canned coconut milk
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 Tbsp vinegar
2 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp curry powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded/cubed
1/4 c chopped green onions
1/2 c red grapes
1/4 c chopped dried apricots
1/4 c Creamy Curry Cilantro Dressing* (optional)

Other ideas for toppings: celery, shredded coconut, chopped almonds, dried mango

*At my local health food store (Ginger's Garden Cafe, Springville, Ut) , they bottle their own dressings, this one is my favorite!

  1. In a small bowl, add 1/4 c coconut milk, 2 Tbsp mayonnaise, 1/2 Tbsp vinegar, 2 tsp sugar, 1 Tbsp curry powder and salt and pepper (for taste).  Add *optional dressing.
  2. Whisk ingredients until well mixed.  Add shredded/ cubed chicken.  Mix well.
  3. Either mix in or top Chicken with chopped onions, red grapes and dried apricots or other toppings listed.  
  4. Serve over bed of greens (spinach, kale, watercress etc.)
