Have you ever tried Earth Fare’s Mock Chicken Salad from the deli? It’s basically a soy product used to mimic chicken, tossed together with curry, raisins, celery and an eggless mayo-type dressing. It is terribly delicious and I miss it so. There are no Earth Fare’s in Illinois and hence, no mock chicken salad. But that’s ok – I’ll be visiting one soon enough 😉

My longing for their mock chicken salad was the inspiration for this real one. I smothered real chicken in a tangy curry dressing along with apples, celery and pecans. I made it a little on the wet side so I could spoon it over some undressed salad greens. Feel free to set aside some of the dressing if you prefer it a little more on the dry side.


Curry Chicken Salad


3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped (or any part of the chicken, 2-3 cups)

1 small apple, chopped

2 large celery stalks, chopped


1 TBS curry powder

1 tsp salt + 1/2 tsp pepper

1/4 cup mayo

1/4 cup plain greek yogurt

1/3 cup white wine


-Combine  all dressing ingredients until well incorporated.

-Toss chicken, apples and celery with dressing until evenly coated.
