Recipe For Chicken, Walnut, and Red Grape Salad With Curry Dressing on Flatbread

'Wich of the Week: Curry Chicken Salad on Flatbread

I love both tuna and chicken salad, but I don't like any sweet stuff encroaching on tuna. Chicken salad, on the other hand, is well-served by fruit and nuts. One of my favorite recipes is this curry-flavored version made with red grapes, green onions, and walnuts, which combine to make an exciting and exotic filling for Middle Eastern-style flatbreads or pita.
Better yet, this chicken salad is actually healthy: it's made with nonfat yogurt and lowfat mayonnaise. With so many intense flavors, you won't miss the full-fat mayo. Though I forgot the lettuce the first go-round, I added it the second time I made these, and it provides a nice bit of texture. Check out more photos and get the recipe.

  3. Stir in chicken, grapes, green onions, and chopped walnuts. Season salad to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be made 6 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
  4. Cover flatbreads with a damp cloth and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, to make them more pliable.
