Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Servings: 4
You may use 3/4 lb. boneless, skinless cooked turkey breast in place of the chicken. For a light summertime supper, serve the salad atop leaves of green-leaf lettuce with a basket of warm buttermilk biscuits.


  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup mango chutney
  • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups diced pan-seared-chicken
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, halved
  • 2 to 3 celery stalks, roughly chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup pistachios
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Make the dressing
Grate 1 tsp. zest and squeeze 1 Tbs. juice from the lemon into a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise, chutney and mustard and stir to combine.

Assemble the salad
Add the chicken, grapes, celery, onion and pistachios to the dressing. Stir gently to combine all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the salad among salad plates or bowls and serve immediately. Serves 4.
