Over the years my husband and I have moved to different areas, and I've collected recipes from all over the United States. This flavorful salad recipe comes from New York. I've served it for luncheons for many years, and it's one of my husband's very favorites. —Linda Wheatley, Garland, Texas

MY REVIEW

Curry is wa-a-ay to overpowering for me, so I left it out.

MY REVIEW

Could you use a different spice than curry. My family does not like curry flavor. Other than that it was very good. I used cashews as some of the members of my family are allergic to peanuts.

My two teenaged sons love this recipe, and consider it a special treat when I make it for them. Definitely a keeper!
