Curried Fruit & Chicken Salad

Lately I've been on a tropical kick - weird, because I've never cared much for pineapple or coconut. I found this unusual chicken salad recipe, adapted it a bit to lower calories, and fell in love. The flavors are complex and the textures are great. This is definitely on my re-make list.

Curried Fruit & Chicken Salad

3/4 c. fat-free mayonnaise
1 tbsp. curry powder
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. lemon juice
4 c. diced cooked chicken
2 c. seedless grapes, halved
1 c. pineapple chunks
1/2 c. water chestnuts (chopped)
1/2 c. coconut
chopped almonds, optional

In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, curry powder, soy sauce and lemon juice. Stir in chicken, grapes, pineapple, and water chestnuts. Chill. Before serving, garnish with coconut & almonds.
