At the Victorian-theme bridal shower I hosted, I spread this dressed-up chicken salad on bread triangles. It's also appealing served on a lettuce leaf. Apples and dried cranberries add color and tang. -Robin Fuhrman, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin


  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 medium unpeeled red apple, chopped
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 12 slices bread
  • Lettuce leaves


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice and curry powder; pour over chicken mixture; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Cut each slice of bread with a 3-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter. Top with lettuce and chicken salad.
