Try other fruits in this salad, such as apples, red or green seedless grapes, or pineapple. Two tablespoons of golden raisins or dried currants may also be added.


  • 2 tablespoons chutney
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 cup lightly salted whole almonds
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 2 red or green unpeeled pears, cored and coarsely chopped
  • Spinach leaves


Snip or chop any large pieces of fruit in the chutney. In a small mixing bowl stir together chutney, mayonnaise or salad dressing, and curry powder.

Coarsely chop 1/3 cup of the almonds. In a large mixing bowl combine chicken, pears, and chopped almonds. Add mayonnaise mixture and mix well. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours. Serve on spinach-lined plates. Garnish with remaining whole almonds.
