Chicken Curry Salad

A long time ago, we used to eat a variation of this salad. It was one of my sister's favorites, but I honestly don't remember being that thrilled by it...& I have no idea why. Tonight we wanted chicken and salad, which got me thinking about this dinner. With some modifications, it became allergy-friendly for our house, and is not only easy to prepare, but absolutely delicious! Now I'm really confused why it wasn't a favorite as a kid, it's definitely going to be a new regular around here.
