Late Summer Chicken Salad with a twist :)

I have taken this Chicken Salad to so many people and it never fails that I hear it's the best they have ever tasted! Here ya go:

Cook Chicken and tear into small pieces (abt. 4 -5 cups +/-) Note: This is even better if made substituting Turkey for Chicken!

1/2 cup (or more) chopped seedless red grapes
1/2 cup chopped apple
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped pecans
opt. 1/3 cup dried cranberries, raisins, celery, water chestnuts etc..
I often use all of those!
Salt and pepper to taste

Toss all of the above together. Then mix the following together and add to chicken.

1/2 cup mayo
1/8 - 1/4 cup of cider vinegar
1/3+ cup sugar
1-2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice
and.... drum roll please....
3/4 - 1 teaspoon curry -the secret :)

Chill several hours and serve on lettuce wedges, pita bread, or rolls etc..
