My favorite memory of eating this dish was when my mom made it for lunch on weekends when we were home from school and could have something other than "brown bag" lunches. Happy memories of childhood and late summer days just make this salad extra special. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

MY REVIEW

Made this last week sometime for supper. Loved it! I halved the recipe, but used the same amount of chicken (2 cups.) The curry powder in the vinaigrette was a nice addition & the apples gave the salad a nice crunch. Nice for a summer meal, will definitely make again! Also- very quick to make supper- that scores a point with me. :)
