  • Large bowl


  • ¾ cup mayonnaise up to 1 cup for desired consistency
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • salt to taste
  • 1 ½ pounds chicken cooked, shredded or chopped
  • 1 medium green apple chopped
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 1 cup roasted cashews roughly chopped


  • Whisk together mayonnaise, curry powder, lime juice, and salt in large bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
  • Add in chicken, green apple, celery, scallops, raisins, and cashews. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.


  • After mixing, taste and adjust seasonings as needed. I always add a little bit more lime juice for extra tanginess. You may prefer just a touch more salt, as well as some black pepper.
