jrubino

 

Serves 6 / You can usually find some wonderful heirloom apples, such as organic Gravenstein, at your local farmers' market or natural foods store, but if they are not available, try a Cortland or Gala. Serving tip: This salad is also great wrapped in a whole-grain tortilla.

Directions
  1. Place chicken in a 2-quart saucepan and cover with water by 2 inches. Add ginger slices and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes. Remove chicken and place on a plate to cool. (Discard cooking liquid.) When cool, chop into 1/2-inch pieces.
  2. In a medium bowl, place chicken, celery, green onions, bell pepper, and apple. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, chutney, lime juice, ginger, curry powder, pepper, salt, and cilantro. Mix until smooth. Add to chicken mixture and toss well.
  3. Divide arugula onto four plates. Top with chicken salad and garnish with walnuts.
