Toasted sliced almonds give great flavor and crunch along with celery in this take on chicken salad. The grapes add a splash of color and sweetness.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2/3 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons coarse-grain mustard
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 cups boneless skinless rotisserie chicken pieces
  • 2 cups red seedless grapes, halved lengthwise
  • 3 large celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce, sliced crosswise

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. with rack in middle. Toast almonds on a baking sheet until pale golden, about 5 minutes, and cool.
  • Whisk together mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, lemon juice, curry powder and sugar in a large bowl. Add almonds, chicken, grapes and celery and combine gently. Season with salt and pepper and serve over Romaine.
