Aunt Marnae's Chicken Salad

This recipe comes from my Aunt Marnae, my dad's sister. Every spring as the weather warms up I start craving this salad. The kids enjoy the DIY aspect of the meal. And I always enjoy the leftover dressing on other salads for another week or so after I make it.


Aunt Marnae's Chicken Salad

For the chicken, grill or saute approximately 1/2 chicken breast per person. If sauteing, consider cooking with minced garlic and ginger. Cut into bite sized pieces.

For the dressing, mix together until smooth:

1 1/2 T white wine vinegar
2 T pineapple juice
1 T lemon juice
1 1/4 teas soy sauce
1 T brown sugar
1/2 T curry powder
1/3 teas onion powder
1 garlic clove, minced
1 c mayonnaise

For the salad, pass the following for layered individual salads:

Celery, chopped
Cilantro, chopped
Snow peas
Water chestnuts
Sliced almonds
Chow mein noodles
Golden raisins
Cucumbers, chopped
