I serve this entree salad in hollowed-out pineapple halves as a pretty company dish. Tender chicken tossed with fruit, nuts and veggies is delicious with a mild curry dressing.—Ryma Shohami, Montreal, QC


  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • 4 cups sliced cooked chicken breast
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Leaf lettuce, optional


  1. Cut pineapple in half; remove fruit, leaving 1-in. shells. Set shells aside for serving; cut fruit into cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, onion, celery, raisins, almonds and 1 cup cubed pineapple (refrigerate remaining pineapple for another use).
