Curried Chicken Salad with Grapes and Cashews

Curried Chicken Salad with Grapes and Cashews

Succulent oven roasted chicken, juicy red grapes, crunchy cashews and celery dressed in a delicately spiced curry dressing. This is a welcome change from ordinary chicken salad, which is all too often dry and bland. Serve it for a fall picnic while the weather's still warm or over greens for a light dinner.
