Fruity Curry Chicken Pasta Salad

It has still been quite warm here...after all it is June, but its so different than last June where I think it rained for 20 something days that month. Anyway, I've been craving pasta salad even though I think I've made 2 or 3 different kinds in the past couple of weeks and had some at a grad party. So tonight I had on the menu enchiladas, but I didn't feel like eating I started searching for a recipe for what I wanted, I finally gave up and made up my own!

Fruity Curry Chicken Pasta Salad
1/2 lb pasta, cooked, drained(I used rotinit)
1/2 cup mayo(enough to keep it moist)
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup chopped grapes
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
curry powder to taste

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy! I don't have exact measurements as sometimes I have a habit of not measuring especially if I'm making it up. I had a pretty big pinch of curry powder, and I think it could have used more!

**This was quite tasty and hit the spot perfectly! Next time I'll add more curry! YUM!


  1. This looks good! How do you think it would be with yogurt rather than mayo? Or maybe half yogurt and half mayo? I've tried a chicken salad similar to that, I might try that with this, thanks!

  2. I think it would work, i was going to use half yogurt or light sour cream but didn't have any. I'd give it a go!
