Curry Walnut Chicken Salad

Some years back, there was a sandwich shop in my workplace building that I would occasionally grab lunch from.  Everything there was fresh and delicious!  One of their specialties was their in-house made chicken salad with a hint of curry seasonings.  They would serve it between your bread of choice or on a bed of salad greens and was one of my go-to choices.

This is my take on what I remembered it tasting like except I add chopped walnuts to mine.  When I have a leftover rotisserie chicken or a whole chicken that I’ve slowed cooked in it’s own juices all day, I make this chicken salad from the leftovers.  Love Love Love it!

This Curry Walnut Chicken Salad is made with leftover chicken, mayo or Greek yogurt, grapes, walnuts, curry powder and celery seeds.  Simple as that!  If I happen to have fresh celery, I do love adding some chopped to give the chicken salad a little extra crunch.

Serve this Curry Walnut Chicken salad on a bed of salad greens, between two slices of toasted sourdough bread for a sandwich or make little tea sandwiches for a fun social, bridal shower, baby shower or picnic!

Serve on a bed of salad greens and tommy toes!  Or put a big dollop of chicken salad between two slices of toasted sourdough bread complimented with some salad greens and have a fabulous sandwich!

Tommy toes?  Yep, that’s what we grew up calling those little salad tomatoes you find in the stores.  I was curious about the name and googled the internet to see if this was an old wise tale name.  Lo and Behold, there really is a tomato plant variety that grows clusters of tiny tomatoes called Tommy Toes!  Who knew?

How about a sweet something to go with this delicious salad?
