  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced jalapeno
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

  • 1/2 cup diced green apple
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup minced onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro

In a small, dry sauté pan over medium heat, add the curry powder and toast, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Set aside.
