A Summer Salad

Curry Chicken Salad

A refreshing twist on Chicken Salad… Adding just a little Curry adds color and a lovely taste!

Perfect for sitting out on the patio for lunch or dinner!

Here I dine al fresco and by myself. Sweet Man was golfing so I decided to listen to the birds sing while I enjoyed this refreshing salad for lunch.

I added apples and cashews as well. Delightful additions.

The Depression Glass plate was a lovely find from a local antique store.

And how do you like my wine charm? It’s made by my friend who tumbles the rocks (which polishes them.) Then she adds a small hole to the Rock so it can be added, with the Rock beads, to the ring.

She and her husband also make the fabulous napkin rings. Aren’t they pretty? They are made from the cactus skeleton of the Cholla Cactus. (Most cactus skeletons are wood.) Creative Friends!

Here’s how I made the chicken salad. You can always add a little more Mayo for a more creamy salad and more or less curry. I went light with mine.

Thank you all for stopping by. I can always add another place setting at the table! 😊

Until Next Time~ Nancy

  1. Yes, Please….add me to your table dear friend. It looks heavenly and I love chicken salad! Don’t you just love when you can eat al fresco, sit and enjoy all the beauty around you? So peaceful and definitely a time to stop and smell the roses so to speak.

    Thank you for the recipe as I will be making it soon for one of my luncheons.

  2. Every thing looks so inviting. I am not a huge curry fan so might really go light…I like the idea of apples cause I always add grapes to my chicken salad. All of the extra touches with the wine charm, depression plate and napkin rings just adds a beautiful “Nancyism” charm..Love you.

    1. Thanks for enjoying! Lunch outside just doesn’t get any better.
      I have a whole set of wine charms. They are all different kinds of rocks.
